Police say they have no suspects in the shooting death of a 25-year-old Edgewood man, who was killed late Thursday or early Friday.

Around 7:30 a.m. Friday a resident in the 600 block of Yorkshire Drive in Edgewood called police after finding a body lying in an open space, according to a news release from the Harford County Sheriff’s Office.

The body was in an open space near the caller’s home.

The man, later identified as Brandon Jerome Sanders, of Edgewood, had been shot in the upper torso and was deceased when he was found, according to the release.

Several neighbors said they heard shots fired between 11 p.m. and midnight on Thursday night, Thanksgiving, but no one called 911.

Police have not indicated if the murder was drug or gang related, and only say they do not believe the homicide was a random act of violence.

Mr. Sanders’ name does not appear on the Maryland Judiciary Case Search.

Investigators are looking into several theories and continue to develop suspects, Monica Worrell, public information specialist with the Sheriff’s Office, said.

Mr. Sanders is the 15th person to be murdered in Edgewood since late 2003. His death was the fourth murder in Harford County this year.

In April, Rebecca Jeanette Kinser, 43, of the 600 block of Harborside Drive in Joppatowne, allegedly shot Charles W. Shourds Jr., 60, of Kentucky after he allegedly beat and raped her in her home. Kinser is awaiting trial.

Less than a week later, on May 5, Yamar Auntrez Martin, 26, of Edgewood, was shot in the Perrywood Gardens apartment complex near Aberdeen.

In June, Donald Donnell Brown Jr., 30, of Baltimore, was arrested and charged in connection with Mr. Martin’s death. Brown’s trial is scheduled to begin Jan. 14, 2010.

On July 4, 25-year-old Timothy Avery Weatherly of Bronx, N.Y., was found dead in an Aberdeen apartment; police said he was shot to death.

Anyone with information about Mr. Sanders’ death is asked to contact Detective John Aksomitus of the Harford County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigative Division at 410-836-5427.
