Man dies in physical altercation Tuesday

By Katie Demeria

An altercation between two males early Tuesday morning in Winchester resulted in one man’s death, according to Lt. Donnie Lang of the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office.

Authorities were called to an apartment complex in the 100 block of Williamson Road at around 4:45 a.m. The male was deceased when they arrived on scene.

The man’s identification has not been released because the next of kin has yet to be notified, Lang said.

“One of the individuals involved made the phone call to us,” he said. “As far as we know, the two were just acquaintances.”

The situation is still under investigation, Lang added, and the motivation for the altercation is unknown.

“The cause of death is still pending, and an autopsy is being conducted,” he said.

No arrest has been made.
