Off-Duty Trooper Fires At Suspect Who Shot Another During Shootout In Wicomico Co. 7-9-17




(SALISBURY, MD) – An off-duty Maryland state trooper working security interrupted an apparent shootout between two men, one of whom who is believed to have just shot the other on the parking lot of a Wicomico County restaurant early this morning.

The two deceased are identified as Michael T. Ward, Jr., 27, and Jaquan M. Griffin, 21, both of Salisbury, Md. Both were transported to Peninsula Regional Medical Center where they were pronounced dead.

According to the preliminary investigation by the Maryland State Police Homicide Unit, at about 2:00 a.m. today, two Maryland state troopers were off-duty and working security at a 24-hr. restaurant in the 400-block Punkin Court, Salisbury. One of the troopers noticed a large crowd outside on the east end of the parking lot. He was calling the Salisbury Police Department to report the crowd when multiple shots were fired on the lot.

Upon hearing the shots, the second trooper came out and approached the east end of the parking lot on the side nearest the restaurant. The preliminary investigation indicates the trooper saw a man, later identified as Ward, firing a handgun. The trooper engaged him and Ward turned in his direction, firing at the trooper as he walked toward him. In fear for his life, the trooper fired at Ward.

Moments later, a man later identified as Griffin, staggered into the restaurant from the parking lot and collapsed on the floor. Two friends took him in their vehicle to Peninsula Regional Medical Center.

EMS personnel responded and transported Ward to Peninsula Regional Medical Center. Neither trooper on the parking lot was injured. No one else on the parking lot reported being injured, however many of them left and did not wait to be interviewed by police.

At this time, Maryland State Police Homicide Unit investigators believe the initial shots on the parking lot occurred when Ward was shooting at Griffin, who may have returned fire. A semi-automatic handgun was recovered beside Ward. A second semi-automatic handgun was found in the parking lot in the area Griffin was believed to have been.

It is unknown at this time whether Ward was fatally wounded by the trooper or Griffin. It is believed Griffin was struck by rounds fired by Ward. The bodies of both Ward and Griffin will be transported to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore for autopsies.

The Maryland State Police Homicide Unit is continuing the investigation. Interviews are being conducted and security camera footage from the restaurant and a nearby hotel is being reviewed. Maryland State Police crime scene technicians are processing the scene for evidence.

The trooper who fired his Department-issued Glock .40 caliber pistol is a seven-year veteran of the Maryland State Police. He has been placed on administrative leave which is routine whenever a trooper is involved in a shooting.

The Maryland State Police Internal Affairs Unit is conducting an investigation into the trooper-involved shooting. This investigation is conducted whenever a trooper is involved in a deadly force shooting.

Homicide Unit investigators have been in contact this morning with the Wicomico County State’s Attorney’s Office. Upon completion, the investigation by the Homicide Unit will be presented to the State’s Attorney’s Office for review.

Two people dead in late night officer involved shooting.

You know it's a sad day in Salisbury to be a Mayor when a national breakfast restaurant has to hire 2 (TWO) off duty police officers as security to protect good patrons who are trying to eat an innocent late night/Sunday morning breakfast. And right next to a large Oakridge Baptist Church.

But Jake Day and Jim Ireton have been feeding us this "Crime is Down" bullsh!t to us for several years now. Barrie Tilghman and Alan Webster lied about gangs in Salisbury for many years.

See what refusing to punish black criminals for "minor" crimes to make it look like crime is down is getting us! See what this denying and lying is getting us! See what this low income housing is getting us! See what inviting homeless criminals to Salisbury is getting us! See what accepting building ECI in the name of jobs is getting us! See what inviting multiple rental housing units is getting us! See what 95% rental housing stock is getting us! See what EBT Cards is getting us! See what refusing to punish black kids in our public schools is getting us!

See what electing Democrats is getting us!

See what electing Jake Day got us!!!

No, you know it's really a sad day being a good citizen and living in Salisbury!!

MS-13 (Mara Salvatrucha; also known as simply MS or Mara) is an international criminal gang that originated in Los Angeles, California, US in the 1980s. The gang later spread to many parts of the continental United States, Canada, Mexico, and Central America, and is active in urban and suburban areas. Most members are ethnically of Central American origin (principally El Salvador).
In the U.S., the MS-13 has an especially heavy presence in Los Angeles County and the San Francisco Bay Area in California; the Washington, D.C. metropolitan areas of Fairfax County, Virginia, Montgomery County, Maryland, and Prince George's County, Maryland; Queens, New York; Long Island, New York; Newark, New Jersey, Plainfield, New Jersey; Jersey City, New Jersey; Elizabeth, New Jersey; the Boston, Massachusetts area; Charlotte, North Carolina; and Houston, Texas. There is also a presence of MS-13 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
Members of MS are characterised by tattoos covering the body and also often the face, and by the use of their own sign language. They are notorious for their use of violence and a subcultural moral code that predominantly consists of merciless revenge and cruel retributions. This cruelty of the distinguished members of the "Maras" or "Mareros" earned them a path to be recruited by the Sinaloa Cartel battling against Los Zetas in an ongoing drug war in Mexico.[5][6][7] Their wide-ranging activities have drawn the attention of the FBI and Immigration and Customs Enforcement, who have initiated wide-scale raids against known and suspected gang members, arresting hundreds across the country

Cracking down on crime would cause riots because it would seem racist to saturate the areas of Salisbury and Wicomico County that have the most crime because most of those areas house minorities. But most of the good people in those areas appreciate police presence because those thugs white or black living in those areas don't care who they rob, hell it could be their elderly neighbor, if they have something they can steal they will. But police can't do their jobs because the fear of being targets of lawsuits or just be targets in general, but you aren't supposed to shoot armed suspects anymore you should taze them instead. It's BS, obviously there are gun carrying thugs in Salisbury and the left wing civil rights groups think the police should throw rocks at them! The good people have to stand up and let be known we want our police to do their jobs because we have their backs!!

11:38 I would rather see an honest assessment of what you speak of - even if the truth hurts - than hide behind the politically correct (i.e. can't profile, violent tendencies and lack of respect by today's black youth, what-the-hell- you-doing-out at 2AM?).

Call it for what it is: black on black crime. ANY time a "large group" of blacks gather, there is ALWAYS violence. I have no idea why. Some sociologist will have to explain it. It is NOT racist to speak facts so you other people need to stop hiding behind your rose-tinted view of what you think life should be and look at what you've actually got.

Speaks volumes when national chains like Denny's doesn't trust the City of Salisbury of the Salisbury Police Department to be their late night security guards. Speaks volumes that a restaurant that specializes in breakfast has to hire 2, I said TWO, Maryland State Police officers to protect it's customers.

Why do Salisbury taxpayers even fund their own police department. Seems to me, they might just turn over the reigns to the Sheriff Department and MSP. This has always been a problem for Maryland (TOO MANY police departments). Just count how many overlapping departments are in Annapolis. Then look at Delaware's "Public Safety" department.

Police are called after the fact. In my memory Police solve the crimes. How many LEO would it take to be in every house, business and on every street corner to prevent crime. Did you consider that those off duty SP Officer might have been doing late night security elsewhere, or perhaps were not interested in working security. You are crapping on something you know nothing about.

Apparently Denny's has experienced problems is the past and now hire off duty officers to quell problems. Do you really believe this shooting would not have happened had Denny's been closed?

I don't believe Denny's or Tax Payers expect a cop on scene 24/7 in case a crime occurs. Make yourself useful by praying the Officer does not loose his LE job for protecting himself and possibly others. I pray when all is said and done it is proven those two thugs fighting with guns shot each other.

My heart goes out to the MD State Officer involved and thank God he was not hurt.

Just wait until October when Maryland's "Justice Reinvestment Act" kicks in....judges hands will be tied to some extent, some crimes no longer will carry jail time, people released from jails and prisons, and the new bail system-have to consider what the person can "afford" to pay for bond. Get used to the crime rate continuing to go UP. There will, unfortunately, likely be many more of these scenarios playing out.

I remember we made the mistake one weekend night to go there about 12:30pm. Where else in Salisbury can you sit down and eat? Many people use it that are traveling and jump off the bypass to get a quick bite. This was about 3 years ago and they had off duty officers there then. I felt sorry for the waitresses that were working. Many were not leaving any tip and a few walked out without paying. At least Denny's is trying to do the right thing by protecting its customers. Banks don't even do that! The officers were standing at the front of the restaurant. They are not hidden in a corner their presence is known. This could have happened anywhere in Salisbury. Thankfully no one other than the thugs were hurt.

Wow. You HAVE to be the stupidest person EVER. Obama did more to ruin this country in 8 years than all whites COMBINED over the history of our country.

It's really sad times. Can we stop the ugly and hate? We are losing a nation. Drugs, murder, homosexuality, teen pregnancy, on and on, does not discriminate. It's affecting us all. Directly or indirectly we are all being destroyed. We have lost respect for HUMAN LIFE. No race is immune to violence. People, we are losing children. White, black, yellow or brown, it's doesn't matter. These are lives. I just want to see the day when as a people we can love the person, regardless of the wrapper we come in. Because you have a confederate flag doesn't mean you racist, if you wear sagging pants doesn't mean your a thug. We are HUMAN and because my wrapper is not the same color as yours, it's doesn't make me better or less than you. It makes me HUMAN and deserving of life and love. I am a lover of people and I am grateful that I am. My sympathy to all involved in this tragedy.

No. You cannot. You always have to have the bad or how do you know the good? Your rambling is just bantering about things out of yours and my control. Its the way the world was designed. It is humans are designed. You can't have good without bad. Light without dark. Good without evil. Purity without polluted. Happiness without sadness.

It is a continuum, containing balance. This is what balance is all about. And the sooner you learn to deal with it, the happier your life will be.

damn wish someone would have told me, the reason the kops ain't chasing down all the thugs and drug dealers in the hood, is because they have been staking out dennys and waiting for them to show up there. and here i was thinking msp only cared about chasing revenue! oh that's right they just happened to be moon lighting and fell into this one! even a blind squirrel finds the occasional nut!
how about going down into the ghetto and dealing with them there? what's that? you might get hurt? aint that your job?
MSP, wcso, spd jokes of the year!
and for all you kop lovers out there, just remember when you call for help, they'll be more then willing to come out and take a report!

10:46 keep trusting in others, and let me know how you make out when the time comes! Or could you possibly be one of the fortunate ones who happens to work as leo, so you don't have to worry since you are armed? what about the rest of us?
just remember black lives matter, except to other blacks!
You live a certain lifestyle no matter what, you should expect what goes along with it!

The reality is for far to many years white folks have killed people of all races with total disregard for life. Y'all are the most vicious kind of man to ever walk this earth. You damn near completely wiped out a whole race of people for their land. You enslaved another to be the burden bearer's of this nation. Now that your comfortable with yourselves and your off springs are in a wonderful place finically. Now you want to point the finger and call everybody else the bad guy! Shame on you. I don't agree with the things young unguided men do at all and in no way do I agree with the direction the culture is going. But how dare a killer of millions of innocent people point a finger at these fools. At least they killed each other or some dumb street shit then walking in to a movie theater or a elementary school and kill for nothing.

sorry to disappoint you random but i have killed nobody and enslaved nobody. Nice try at your racist rants tho. and nice try at deflecting the burden of blame.

Emi if you are out at 2 am in the morning with a handgun, you are out looking for trouble. Nobody deserves to die just trying to have some early morning breakfast or late dinner. Nobody deserves to go out to eat in fear because of a congregation of thugs with ILLEGAL carrying of guns. Nobody deserves to have to shut their doors because its not safe for their customers to come in to eat. NObody deserves to be called racist because we dont agree with your thuggery...Nobody deserves to lose their jobs or hours because people cant go out to eat without fear because of these thugs hanging around. Nobody in law enforcement deserves to lose their lives because of these gangbangers hanging out with ILLEGAL guns shooting at each other. Need i go on?

Hey Random,
First of all double shame on you back (LOL). I've killed no one, don't recall enslaving anyone either. That's typical racist talk repeated over and over to try to make excuses for criminal black behavior. The world is a bit safer place today, now that your "unguided young men" are not a part of it.
BTW, who is in charge of "guiding" these young men? is anyone getting on that?
