NANTICOKE, Md. - The Wicomico County Sheriff's Office says a Nanticoke man was arrested Friday for attempted murder.

The Sheriff's Office says just before 11:30 p.m. Friday night they received a call in reference to shots being fired inside a home on the 20000 block of Nanticoke Road. During the investigation, deputies say they learned that 38-year-old Daniel Werner had become angry after discovering his fiancée inside a neighbor's home. Deputies say Werner reportedly returned home, retrieved a shotgun, and went back to the neighbor's home and discharged the shotgun in the direction of his fiancée. Deputies say Werner then allegedly left the home and shot the vehicle belonging to the man who lived there, shooting out the front and rear windows.

Deputies say the shotgun was left at the scene. No one was injured, according to police.

Police say Werner was found driving on Nanticoke Road heading toward Salisbury and was taken into custody.

Werner was transported to the Central Booking unit where he was charged and taken in front of the District Court Commissioner, according to police. After an initial appearance, the Commissioner detained Werner in the Wicomico County Detention Center without bond. Werner is charged with attempted first- and second-degree murder, first-degree assault and reckless endangerment.
