Millersville man arrested in gun pointing road rage incident

On April 15, 2018 at approximately 5:12 p.m., an adult female responded to Eastern District Police Station to report a road rage incident.  The victim advised while she was driving on Route 100 & Oakwood Road, a driver of a black Dodge cut her off and pointed a gun at her. The victim was able to obtain the suspect’s license plate information before the vehicle exited onto northbound Route 2.  Officers responded to the suspect’s address, however no one was home and no vehicle was located.

On April 16, 2018, detectives responded back out to the suspect’s residence and located the suspect vehicle parked near the residence. The suspect could not be located so detectives seized and obtained a search warrant for the vehicle. As a result, detectives recovered a loaded .9mm Ruger handgun from inside the vehicle.  Detectives then applied for and obtained an arrest warrant for the suspect.

On April 17, 2018, the suspect turned himself into officers at Eastern District Police Station. He was arrested and served his arrest warrant charging him with 1st degree assault, 2nd degree assault, and handgun violations.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
