Detectives Investigating Homicide on Promenade Place

 

On May 16 at approximately 8:24 p.m., officers responded to the 3400 block of Promenade Place in Waldorf for the report of a shooting. Upon arrival, officers found Samuel Keith Gemeny, 35, of Waldorf  inside his apartment with a gunshot wound to the upper body. He was pronounced deceased on the scene. A preliminary investigation showed three suspects knocked on the door of the apartment. When an occupant of the apartment opened the door, the suspects forced their way inside. An argument ensued between Gemeny and the suspects during which Gemeny struck one suspect over the head with an iPad. Another suspect then shot Gemeny. The suspects fled from the area in an unknown type of car. Based on additional information, it appears the suspects knew the victim and were arguing over property just prior to the shooting. Detectives are pursuing leads. Anyone with additional information is asked to call Det. C. Shankster at (301) 609-6513.
