New security footage shows Frederick shooting suspect chasing victim

New security footage from inside a business in the Frederick office park where a Navy medic allegedly shot two people shows the suspect chasing one of the victims before fleeing to nearby Fort Detrick where security shot and killed him Tuesday.

Previous security video from inside the same business, Nicolock Paving Stones, shows one of the victims running inside for help. The new footage from other Nicolock security cameras purportedly shows the victim running from the suspect who is following them.

Staff members at Nicolock say they quickly locked the doors and contacted authorities when the victim ran in, covered in blood, telling them there was an active shooter. 


Officials say one of the two victims who was shot remains hospitalized in critical condition Wednesday morning. The second victim has been released. The two sailors were both assigned to Fort Detrick.

The authorities identified the victims Wednesday afternoon as US Navy Hospitalman Casey Nutt, 26, of Germantown.

Nutt was found by employees at Nicolock after he fled the scene of the initial shooting. He was released from the trauma center Tuesday night.

Hospital Corpsman 1st Class Carlos Portugal, 36, of Frederick, is the victim Frederick police found in the warehouse where the initial shooting occurred. He remains at the trauma center in critical condition.

Casey Nutt's father, James Nutt, provided a statement to FOX 5:

"It’s shocking for any parent to hear about their children involved in a violent act such as yesterday. My family and my thoughts and prayers go out to the family of the other sailor involved and hope he recovers."

Authorities identified the shooter as 38-year-old Fantahun Girma Woldesenbet. The incident began Tuesday morning when officials say Woldesenbet used a rifle to open fire at a facility at the Riverside Tech Park on Progress Drive in Frederick.
