CHESAPEAKE CITY, Md. - 41-year-old David Everson, of the 100 block of Elk Forrest Road in Elkton, was pronounced dead after suffering from a gunshot wound to the chest.
Police were called to the unit block of Vanderlyn Drive in Chesapeake City around 11:30 p.m. Friday night, after receiving phone calls from a woman that said her ex-husband, Everson, pulled into her driveway and was beating on the door.
On the night of the shooting, police learned Everson was sending text messages to his ex-wife, the caller, threatening to come to the home and hurt her current husband.
Shortly after 11:30 p.m., police say Everson pulled into the driveway of the residence and started blowing his horn. He got out of his car and walked to the house and banged on the door. Everson allegedly entered the home with a key.
The caller’s current husband was standing in the living room when he fired a 22 caliber rifle at Everson who had just entered the house.
The ex-wife and four children were inside the home at the time of the incident.
The Maryland State Police Homicide Unit and the North East Barrack Criminal Investigation Section continues the investigation.
