Posted: Updated:

DELMAR, Md. - A multi-agency manhunt is now underway in Delmar, Maryland.

The Wicomico County Sheriff tells WMDT one man is dead, after being shot earlier this evening on Foskey Lane. Now Maryland State Police have their helicopters on the look-out from the air and K-9 units are searching on the ground for the gunman.

The suspect they are looking for is considered armed and dangerous and is believed to still have the handgun in his possession. There is a perimeter set up in the area of Foskey Lane and law enforcement is asking that you avoid the area if you can. If you live within the perimeter authorities are urging you to stay in your home.

Police are searching for 29-year-old Eddie Savage Jr., in connection with the shooting. He is described as an African-American male, 5'7", around 125lbs with dreadlocks. Authorities tell WMDT that Savage Jr. was last seen wearing a red tank top with black gym shorts that have white vertical stripes along the side. He reportedly walks with a limp due to a previous gun shot wound.

He was last seen headed south east from Foskey Lane, towards Bistate Boulevard to 675 and 2nd Street in Delmar.

Police confirm to WMDT the victim is a 48-year-old male. No name has been released at this time.
