Shooting Investigation

On 12/12/09 at approximately 1:30 am, officers responded to 1003 Columbine Drive, Sunset Walk Apartments, for a report of an assault. Preliminary information revealed multiple subjects entered an apartment at the complex and confronted the residents inside. During this confrontation, a female resident was assaulted by a female suspect. A male also brandished a handgun during the incident.

As they were leaving the scene, the suspects confronted two females in the parking lot, one of whom was the sister of the first victim. During this confrontation, the suspect with the gun reportedly pointed it at the sister as the female suspect fought both girls. The two females were able to get away from the suspects and fled. While leaving the scene, the victims reported hearing a gunshot.

As officers began arriving at the scene of the original incident, police received a report of a shooting victim at Frederick Memorial Hospital. Officers were able to determine the victim at the hospital had been shot in his wrist at Sunset Walk Apartments. Further investigation revealed the male victim had been with the other female victims earlier in the evening and the incidents all appear to be related.

During a canvass of the area, officers located two males inside a vehicle in the apartment complex. The males were identified as Michael Nimely Johnson and his brother Malcolm Nimely Johnson. Both Johnson brothers were identified as being inside the apartment during the first incident and at the scene of the second altercation. They were taken into custody and transported to police headquarters.

Detectives were able to identify the female suspect as Amanda Christine Harris. She was taken into custody at her residence. Harris, Michael Johnson and Malcolm Johnson are currently at Central Booking being charged with offenses relating to the first two incidents. The charges for the suspects will be listed in a follow up press release. Detectives from the Criminal Investigation Division are continuing to investigate the shooting and additional charges could be forthcoming.

The victim of the shooting is being treated at Frederick Memorial Hospital for non-life threatening injuries. No additional information is being released at this time.
