FPD investigating homicide on Routzahn's Way

THE CITY OF FREDERICK (8)

At approximately 7:15 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 26, 2021, officers from the Frederick Police Department responded to the 100 Block of Routzahn’s Way for reports of a shooting.
Upon arrival, investigators located one male victim, later identified as Jaion Antonio Penamon, who had been shot multiple times. Penamon was pronounced deceased at the scene.
The initial investigation determined a male and a female got into an altercation inside the restaurant establishment where the incident occurred. Penamon attempted to intervene in the altercation and was shot in the vestibule of the restaurant. Through the course of the investigation, coordinated in conjunction with law enforcement partners from Frederick County Sheriff’s Office, Maryland State Police, and Brunswick Police Department, investigators developed a person of interest. That individual is currently in police custody, but will not be identified publicly unless an arrest is made and charges are filed.
This is still an active and ongoing investigation and FPD is requesting anyone who may have witnessed the incident or has information regarding the incident contact Det. Jones at 240-674-7058 or KJones@frederickmdpolice.org.  Callers may also remain anonymous and contact the Frederick Police Department’s Crime Tip Line at 301-600-TIPS (8477).
