PRINCESS ANNE, Md.– Maryland State Police on Thursday arrested two suspects in connection with last week's fatal shooting of a Princess Anne man.

The suspects were identified as Brandon Michael Early, 17, of the 500 block of Random Drive in Baltimore and Cory Hamilton, 28, of the 400 block of Liberty Street in Salisbury. Police said both suspects are charged with first- and second-degree murder, and robbery.

Authorities said the victim, identified as Adrian Lurele Marshall, 35, of the 11000 block of Greenwood School Road in Princess Anne, was found dead in his home on Thanksgiving morning. The autopsy determined Marshall died from multiple gunshot wounds. The manner of his death was ruled a homicide, according to investigators.

Police said Early was arrested at his home in Baltimore without incident at 2 p.m. Thursday and that Hamilton was arrested at his place of employment in Salisbury without incident at 11 a.m. Thursday. Both men are awaiting an appearance before the Somerset County District Court Commissioner.

According to police, at around 1 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 28, state troopers responded to Marshall's home after receiving a 911 call about a possible shooting. Upon their arrival, Marshall was found lying in the kitchen area of his duplex style home. 

Detectives from the MSP Homicide Unit responded to the scene and initiated an investigation. Continuing assistance was provided by state police investigators from the Criminal Enforcement Division from Berlin, Salisbury and Princess Anne, the Gang Enforcement Unit, the Gun Enforcement Unit, and the State Apprehension Team. Crime scene technicians from the MSP Forensic Sciences Division responded to gather and process evidence at the scene. The Somerset County State's Attorney also responded.

Investigators continue to interview witnesses and urge anyone with information to call Crime Solvers of the Lower Eastern Shore at (410) 548-1776. All callers will remain anonymous.
