OCEAN CITY, Md.- The man charged with a Baltimore County man's death after a brutal assault in Ocean City had his initial court appearance Tuesday night. 

Ocean City police say their extensive review of surveillance footage, forensic evidence, witness statements and citizen tips led them to 21-year-old Darren Beattie of Sparrows Point, Md. (Baltimore County). He has been charged following the May 29 assault, according to OCPD.

The victim of the attack was 31-year-old Ryan Shupert of Lutherville-Timonium, Md.

Police said that once they tentatively identified Beattie as the suspect, they traveled to the Dundalk and Sparrows Point neighborhoods of Baltimore County on June 4 and with the help of Baltimore County police were able to locate and interview Beattie, along with other witnesses and involved parties.

According to Ocean City police, an arrest warrant for Beattie was obtained Tuesday morning, and he turned himself in to police on Tuesday afternoon. He is charged with manslaughter and second-degree assault and has been transferred to Worcester County Jail in Snow Hill. 

Anyone who may have additional information about the assault is asked to call (410) 723-6602 or submit a tip at oceancitymd.gov/police.
