From the Harford County Sheriff’s Office:
Deputies with the Harford County Sheriff’s Office Warrant Unit arrested a man in Cecil County early Thursday morning in connection to a shooting that occurred in December.
On December 30th, at approximately 9:59 p.m., deputies from the Harford County Sheriff’s Office Southern Precinct were called to a home in the 900 block of Topview Drive in Edgewood for the report of a person shot. Upon arrival, deputies located one victim with multiple gunshot wounds near the address. Medics transported the victim to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.
Detectives from the Harford County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division responded to continue the investigation. Detectives with the Forensic Services Unit processed the scene for evidence.
Preliminarily, detectives determined the male victim was in the 900 block of Topview Drive with a female, when they were approached by four black male suspects and the victim was shot multiple times.
Through investigation, detectives were able to identify two suspects in connection to this shooting, Ronald Scaife, 22, and Deonte Copenhaver, 21. Arrest warrants charging both with attempted 1st degree murder, 1st degree assault, attempted 2nd degree murder, 2nd degree assault and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony were issued by a District Court Commissioner.
Deputies arrested Scaife in Baltimore in January, a week following the shooting. Around 4:30 a.m. on Thursday, Deputies assigned to the Warrant Unit of the Harford County Sheriff’s Office, with assistance from the Maryland State Police, U.S. Marshall’s Office, and Cecil County Sheriff’s Office, located Deonte Copenhaver in Cecil County and took him into custody without incident.
