OCEAN CITY, Md.- Police say they have scoured surveillance footage and witness statements but are not ready to release leads they may have on the suspects believed to be responsible for beating a Baltimore County man to death during a weekend fight in Ocean City. 

According to Ocean City police, 31-year-old Ryan Shupert of Lutherville-Timonium succumbed to his injuries at Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury on Tuesday. Police said the assault is now classified as a homicide.

Detectives believe Shupert and two friends got into an argument with the four suspects on a municipal bus early Sunday morning before the physical fight at 136th Street and Coastal Highway. Police said they are continuing to search for the four suspects who are believed to be from the Baltimore area.

Police have provided the following description of the suspects:

Suspect 1: A white male with a darker complexion in his 20s. He is between 6-foot and 6-foot-1, weighing approximately 200 pounds with dark, curly hair parted to the side and gel in his hair. He was reportedly wearing glasses and a red shirt before the fight occurred.

Suspect 2: A white male with a lighter complexion in his 20s. He has short reddish brown hair with extensive tattoos on both his arms and neck. He was wearing a white T-shirt at the time of the incident.

Suspects 3 & 4: White males in their 20s.

Detectives are reviewing surveillance video, witness statements and forensic evidence and ask anyone who might have seen the fight or the suspects to call )(410) 723-6602 or submit a tip online at oceancitymd.gov/police.

“We are confident that someone has valuable information about this incident and knows the suspects that were involved,” said Ocean City Police Chief Ross Buzzuro. “We urge anyone that may have information to contact us, particularly those that may have been on a municipal bus between the hours of 1:30 a.m. and 2:30 a.m. in the areas of 70th to 130th Streets on Sunday, May 29.”
