Pocomoke City Police Dept. Press Release ~ Incident At YMCA


Pocomoke Police Department
300 Second Street
Pocomoke, Maryland 21851

Date: 30 January 2012 
Incident occurred 28 January 2012.
Pocomoke City Police received a call to respond to 1900 Worcester Hwy (YMCA) for a fight. Once officers arrived on the scene, they began investigating the incident. Officers learned that there was a birthday party for one of the Pocomoke resident inside the YMCA. Several individuals from Accomac, Virginia attended the party and a fight occurred. One victim was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

Further investigation revealed once the suspects from Virginia left the YMCA they began shooting in the direction of the crowd.
Pocomoke City Police Officer interviewed several witnesses and was able to identify several of the suspects involved.

The case is still under investigation however, I am confident Pocomoke City Police Officers will be applying for arrest warrants with the Worcester County Commissioners Office.

Good job by the Pocomoke Police. They arrived at the YMCA quick and locked down all the entrances to the YMCA and know one was allowed to leave until they were done. I hope those suspects are caught soon.

Oh I can't believe it. "they began shooting in the direction of the crowd". This is terrible. Why don't people have respect for each other and human life anymore. thankfully no one was killed but now because of a dumb action some will be going to jail. I wonder if they think it was worth it all the showing off with guns and trying to prove something.
