According to the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO), at approximately 11:11 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 6, FCSO deputies were dispatched to the Urbana Giant located at 3530 Sugarloaf Parkway for a shooting.

Per the FCSO, “Upon arrival, deputies found one person deceased and a subject on the run. Deputies are attempting to locate the subject at this time and this shopping center will be closed off to the public for some time. We will continue to update this page as more information becomes available.”

The FCSO provided an update at 8:23am on Sunday morning: “After tracking the suspect from the homicide at the Giant in Urbana, Frederick County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) deputies successfully located Frederick Owusu Sakyi, age 33, of Walkersville, Maryland, and arrested him without incident. Deputies completed a quick check of his vehicle and observed a handgun on the front seat and an assault rifle on the back seat.

Out of respect for the family, we will not post the name of the deceased on social media. However, FCSO deputies made all next of kin notifications. The initial investigation found that Sakyi was the estranged husband of the victim and that they are currently going through a divorce. Additionally, there is a history of protective orders and stalking by Sakyi.

Deputies transported Sakyi to the Frederick County Adult Detention Center for booking. The Urbana shopping center where the Giant is located is now back open to the public.
