Suspect held in slaying of Allegany County man

March 21, 2010

State and local police have captured a suspect charged in the killing of an Allegany County man late Friday. Richard J. Glenn II, 23, of Rawlings has been charged in a warrant with second-degree murder, first- and second-degree assault, and reckless endangerment, Maryland State Police said in a statement. The victim is identified as Matthew G. Golden, 38, also of Rawlings. According to police, dispatchers received a call at 11:50 p.m. Friday reporting an argument in the Allegany County home where Glenn lives with his girlfriend, two children, and his girlfriend's parents. The caller said Glenn had fired a gun as he was leaving home. While police were responding, a 911 call came through saying that Golden had been shot at his home in the 16000 block of Rawlings Lane, about one-half mile from Glenn's residence. Police found Golden lying at the bottom of a stairwell that led to his home's basement entrance. Golden was rushed by helicopter to a Cumberland hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Witnesses told officers that Golden identified Glenn as his attacker, according to the police statement. After the shooting, the gunman ran off in an unknown direction, and was arrested Saturday afternoon. The motive for the shooting was not known.
