Glen Burnie Shooting Suspect Arrested

GLEN BURNIE, Md. (WJZ) — On Saturday morning at approximately 12:13 a.m., officers responded to Dietrich’s Tavern at 7346 Furnace Branch Road in Glen Burnie for a report of shots being fired.  Upon arrival, officers discovered a single male victim with multiple gunshot wounds to the torso.  The victim was transported by ambulance to Baltimore-Washington Medical Center where he later died.  The victim was identified as 30-year-old Kelly Terrell Fisher.

Homicide Unit detectives responded to the scene to investigate.  It appears the suspect, a black male approximately 5’10” to 6’02” with a medium build, exited a vehicle and began shooting at the victim with a rifle. Preliminary information indicates that the victim and suspect possibly knew each other and the victim may have been targeted for unknown reasons by the suspect.

The suspect was later identified as Clayton Battle.  He has been charged with murder, assault and weapons charges.  He is being held at the Anne Arundel County Detention Center without bond.

This is the 11th homicide of 2010; there were a total of 12 in 2009.

    Look him up on MD case search. He should have been incarcerated. This should have never happened.

      It would not have happened if the bar was like it was before it closed and reopened. This is what the “different” clientele brings, which is why none of the original regulars dare to go in there anymore

    The 11th homicide in Anne Arundel County this year right? Cause the writer can’t possibly mean the whole state of MD.

    D’s use to be a great pub, now it is a drug dealing, prostitue hangout! Sorry owners, but if you don’t get rid of that type of crowd, lots of us won’t be back.

  • V/R

    Clay is our family member, and we all need to first pray for the victim and his family and then for Clay too. Plz dont judge, now is the time for prayer….

  • Fam Friend

    V/R your family is obviously sick and twisted. I’ll pray for yall. I pray that they give your prescious Clay the death penalty and\or life in prison. He deserves it. Murder is a capital crime. One of our lords laws that should not be broken. Clay will get what he deserves.
