SALISBURY, Md.- Police say the man accused of gunning down his estranged wife on the roof of her Salisbury home is being held without bond on murder and related charges.

Salisbury police said in a tweet Wednesday morning that 35-year-old Jameal Rashawn Gould was spotted driving a vehicle traveling in the area of Jersey and Connelly Mill roads in Salisbury. Salisbury police, with the assistance of the Maryland State Police Gang Unit and the Capitol Area Regional Fugitive Task Force, initiated a traffic stop on the vehicle and he was taken into custody without incident.

Gould was charged with first- and second-degree murder, home invasion, first- and second-degree assault, false imprisonment and firearms charges. He is being held without bond in the Wicomico County Detention Center.

The crime happened at around 1:30 p.m. Sunday, when officers responded to the 1000 block of Aspen Drive in Salisbury to investigate a reported shooting.

There, police found 30-year-old Erica Gould on top of a roof with multiple gunshot wounds to her upper body.

A further investigation revealed that Erica was allegedly shot by her estranged husband, Jameal, according to police.

Police said that Jameal went to Erica's home on the 1000 block of Aspen Drive in an effort to continue an argument which had apparently started earlier Sunday morning.

Once at the victim’s home, Jameal forced his way inside with a gun and began to look for his estranged wife, according to police. Jameal found her hiding just outside of an upstairs window on the roof, according to police. He is alleged to have fired multiple shots, striking the woman. Police said Jameal then fled the scene.

Erica was transported to Peninsula Regional Medical Center, where she died Sunday evening.

Following the shooting, an arrest warrant was obtained for Jameal charging him with the aforementioned offenses. Salisbury police detectives from the entire Eastern Shore, including members of the Maryland State Police Gang Unit and the Capitol Area Regional Fugitive Task Force, assisted in the search for him.

    Crews Cleanup Chesapeake Bay Debris Following Record Rainfall

    Earlier this Summer, flooding in areas up north has brought tons of freshwater and debris down through the Susquehanna River. The debris passes through the Conowingo Dam and ends up in the Chesapeake Bay. Most of the debris consists of large tree trunks and limbs. Now, Maryland's Department of Natural Resources says a lot has been cleared in the upper Bay, but four months later, the cleanup continues.
