Po­lice say a man was shot and killed in­side a Wal­dorf apart­ment Tues­day night af­ter at least three sus­pects forced their way through the door. Six sus­pects were ar­rested and charged with first-de­gree mur­der on Wed­nes­day.

Sa­muel Keith Ge­meny, 35, of Wal­dorf was shot mul­ti­ple times in his up­per body around 8:24 p.m. on Tues­day be­fore the sus­pects fled the apart­ment, lo­cated in the 3400 block of Prom­e­nade Place, in an un­known ve­hi­cle, ac­cord­ing to court records and a Charles County Sher­iff’s Of­fice spokesper­son. Ge­meny was pro­nounced dead at the scene.

Do­minic Xavier Daniel, 24, the al­leged gun­man; Do­minique Ariel Grant, 28; An­drew Loren Webb, 24; Mor­gan Ty­rone Rich Jr., 27; Jared Ja­cob Hayes, 31, all of Wal­dorf, and Gabrielle Marie Ditella, 19,

of Costesville, Pa., were ar­rested for mur­der, home in­va­sion, rob­bery and other charges.

De­tec­tives be­lieve that two men, Daniel and an­other un­named man, and a

woman, Grant, forced their way into the apart­ment af­ter knock­ing on the door of the apart­ment, ac­cord­ing to court records and po­lice. Once in­side, they re­port­edly con­fronted Ge­meny about prop­erty and money owed to them. Dur­ing the ar­gu­ment, Ge­meny struck Daniel over the head with an iPad.

Daniel then turned to­ward Ge­meny and al­legedly shot him at least one time be­fore flee­ing the build­ing.

Po­lice have since de­ter­mined that the sus­pects, who drove to the apart­ment build­ing in two sep­a­rate cars, had been to­gether be­fore the shoot­ing, dis­cussing the money and prop­erty Ge­meny owed

Daniel and an­other sus­pect, and re­port­edly con­spired to com­mit a home

in­va­sion, charg­ing doc­u­ments state.

All six de­fen­dants were ar­rested Wed­nes­day, and re­main in cus­tody.
