INDIAN HEAD, Md. (AP) - Police in Charles County say an 18-year-old man was slain during a fight at a party at an Indian Head home.
The Charles County Sheriff's Office says the victim, identified as Jerry Gilcrhist of Cheltenham, was taken to a hospital by friends and was suffering from what appeared to be blunt force trauma. He died at the hospital.
Sheriff's deputies came to the house around 2:45 Saturday morning for a report of shots fired and learned that there had been several fights there. But they did not find any shooting victims. Deputies learned about the injuries to Gilchrist while they were at the scene.
Investigators are awaiting autopsy results. The sheriff's office did not release any suspect information.
