UPDATE: Holiday Party Homicide in Damascus

December 21, 2015

Montgomery County Police Major Crimes detectives are investigating a fatal shooting that took place in the midnight hour after an alleged holiday party in Damascus shortly after midnight early Monday morning.

   Police have arrested and charged 35-year-old Francisco A. Trujillo, a resident of 24611 Ridge Road in Damascus with the killing of 40-year-old, Mario Alberto Perez.

   MCPD 5th District Police and Fire/EMS units responded to a report of a shooting at the Ridge Road address at 12:38 am, at the scene they located Perez, suffering from an apparent gunshot wound to the torso.

   Police report that the victim succumbed to his injuries at the scene. Trujillo remained on the scene and was taken into custody by responding officers.

   Preliminary investigation revealed that the victim and the 35-year-old male suspect were acquaintances and that the victim had been invited into the home, which was decorated for the holidays, earlier in the day for some sort of holiday gathering. For reasons still under investigation, the suspect shot the victim after an argument occurred between the two men inside the home. Reports say the victim was found near the front door of the home, lying on the floor adjacent to a Christmas Tree.

   This is the second homicide in the Fifth District/Germantown area within a week. On Wednesday a 30-year-old Frederick man was shot to death in front of a home on Sage Way in Germantown.
