MSP Seek Suspect Involved in Deadly Home Invasion in Salisbury

Posted:
SALISBURY, Md.-Maryland State Police are offering a reward for information leading to the arrest and indictment of the suspect involved in a home invasion that left one person dead and another injured early Wednesday morning in Salisbury.

The investigation began just after 1:00 a.m. when troopers from the Salisbury Barrack along with officers from the Salisbury Police Department were called to the scene at the 27000 block of Pemberton Drive.

When authorities checked the residence, they found 72-year-old Donald Mariner injured. Troopers also made contact with the second victim who said that he had been assaulted with a blunt object.

Police said, medical personnel attempted to treat both victims. Mariner was pronounced dead while the second victim was taken to Peninsula Regional Medical Center for further medical treatment.

Rose Jenkins lived down the street from Donald Mariner for nearly 20 years, and can not believe he is dead.

"During the night my son said he heard a gun shot, he was outside smoking and my other son said a gun shot woke him up," said Jenkins.  " Nice neighbors, no problem, very quiet, never any problems out of them." 

Jenkins says the area is usually quiet but says from now on she will be on alert.

"I think everybody has to keep their doors locked and be a little bit more safe because in this day and time you never know."

The second victim is not being identified at this time due to concerns for his safety. 

Mariner's body will be taken to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore for an autopsy.
 
Police describe the suspect as an African American man wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans. Investigators are continuing to develop further leads regarding the suspect.

Investigators are encouraging anyone with information concerning this home invasion to contact the Maryland State Police Salisbury Barrack at 410-749-3101. 

The Crime Solvers of the Lower Eastern Shore are offering a $2,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and indictment of the suspect. They can be contacted at 410-548-1776. Callers may remain anonymous.
