MSP Investigating Murder Of UMES Student

Posted: Updated:

PRINCESS ANNE, Md. - Police are investigating the murder of a University of Maryland Eastern Shore student.

Maryland State Police, with UMES Police say that 21-year-old Edmond A. St. Clair died Saturday night after sustaining injuries after an apparent altercating on campus.

St. Clair was pronounced dead at Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury after 9:30 PM.

Police say they are looking for three unidentified suspects described as African American males in their late teens or early twenties. 

The preliminary investigation indicates that shortly after 9:00 p.m. yesterday, a campus police officer was parked in her patrol car in the parking lot of the "Pavilion" on College Backbone Road, when a male, later identified as the victim's brother, came running to her police car and reported his brother had been stabbed.  The officer responded to the nearby scene and found the victim lying on the roadside next to his girlfriend's car. 

Investigators have learned the victim was apparently a passenger in his girlfriend's Honda that was being driven by his brother.   Another male passenger was in the rear of the vehicle.  Neither the victim's brother nor the other male are students at the university, but both were visiting for the weekend. 

According to reports from the police, the three were driving through campus when they encountered three or four people walking in the street.  Some type of altercation ensued and the victim was stabbed with an as yet unidentified weapon. 

Police say they have no reason to believe this was a random assault.  

Anyone who witnessed this crime or has information is urged to contact Maryland State Police at the Princess Anne Barrack at 443-260-3700.  Police say callers may remain anonymous.  

Officials say that university students were warned of the crime through their campus security alert system. 

Students have been provided a number to call, 410-651-8484, if they have questions or concerns.
