UPDATED: Suspect Charged with Murder in Germantown Held Without Bond (VIDEO)

UPDATED, June 5, 2:36 p.m.- Donald Wayne Bricker, Jr., 27, charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of Mariam Folashade Adebayo, 24, has been released from the hospital and is being held without bond pending a court appearance tomorrow afternoon.

According to Ramon Korionoff, spokesperson for the Montgomery County State’s Attorney’s Office, Bricker, Jr. remains held without bond after a bail review hearing Thursday at the Montgomery County District Court.

In this MyMCMedia Extra, Montgomery County Police Capt. Paul Starks tells what happened:

On June 1st, at about 7:33 p.m., Montgomery County Police responded to multiple 911 calls for a shooting in the parking lot in front of the Target store in Germantown. Officers responded to the area and found Adebayo in the parking lot suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. She was transported to a local hospital where she died, according to police.

At the scene, multiple witnesses told police they saw Adebayo and Bricker, Jr. fighting in a pickup truck before Adebayo got out.  Police said witnesses saw Bricker also get out the truck holding a handgun.  Police said witnesses told them Bricker fired the gun in the direction of Adebayo and she fell to the ground.  Witness said Bricker then walked up to Adebayo and shot her again, according to police.

Bricker then fled from the scene in a white, older model, Ford Ranger pickup truck, police said.

About ten minutes after police arrived on the scene, an off-duty officer located Bricker’s truck near Comus Road and Old Hundred Road in Dickerson.  Police said Bricker refused to pull over and officers followed in pursuit.

At about 8:12 p.m., in the area of the 15800 block of Darnestown Road, Bricker’s truck crashed and officers arrested the suspect.  Bricker was taken to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries from the accident.

On June 3, family and friends held a vigil in Germantown to honor Adebayo’s life.
