SALISBURY, Md.- Maryland State Police have taken over the investigation into a homicide following a late Monday morning shooting in Salisbury. 

According to police, a search is under way for a suspect as the community mourns the loss of 21-year-old Dommeir D. Deshields, of Church Street in Salisbury. 

Salisbury Police Chief Barbara Duncan said the call came in around 11:30 a.m. For shots fired on the 600 block of Baker Street at East Railroad Avenue.

According to Maryland State Police, responding officers from Salisbury Police Department found the victim lying in the street and determined he had sustained multiple gunshot wounds. Police said the victim was transported to Peninsula Regional Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

A witness to the shooting told WBOC he heard five or six shots and saw "a male laying down in the street."

Maryland State Police say preliminary investigation indicates the victim was walking on the street when a suspect approached and shot him with an unknown type of firearm.

Police said they are actively searching for the suspect, although no information about the suspect is available.

Police say investigators have been interviewing witnesses and residents throughout the day. Crime scene evidence has been transported to the State Police Forensic Sciences Division crime laboratory for analysis.

Monday's shooting was the second shooting in two days and third homicide in Wicomico County in a week's time. 

Anyone with information about this murder is asked to contact Maryland State Police at the Salisbury Barrack at (410) 749-3101, or Crime Solvers of the Lower Eastern Shore at (410) 548-1776. Callers may remain anonymous.
