FEDERALSBURG, Md.– Maryland State Police are investigating the murder of a man whose body was found on a Federalsburg street late Tuesday night.
The victim has been identified as 21-year-old Anthony C. Abner Jr. of the 100-block of Brooklyn Avenue in Federalsburg. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Investigators said that shortly before midnight Tuesday, Federalsburg police officers were dispatched to the 200-block of East Central Avenue for the report of a body seen lying on the pavement in front of the business located there. When they arrived, officers found Abner's body, which had sustained at least one apparent gunshot wound. EMS personnel were called and pronounced him dead.
Shortly before Abner's body was found, someone called 9-1-1 to reporting hearing possible gunshots in the area.
Federalsburg police requested the MSP Homicide Unit to take over the investigation. Investigators contacted residents in the area and have been interviewing family and friends of the victim.
