A crime scene investigation was conducted, and they located 11 discharged shell casings on the roadway of Golden West Way. They recovered six spent brass 9mm casings and five spent .40 caliber shell casings.

Police interviewed the male witness who said that that he picked up the victim and the female witness in his vehicle on Golden West Way on Saturday night at approximately 9 or 10 p.m., and they went to a Halloween party on Sixes Road, in Prince Frederick. The male witness stated that nothing happened at this party, however, he said a white male in his early 20’s named, “Dru,” was at this party. He went on to say that he had previously been at a party with Dru approximately two months ago, and Dru displayed a pistol and stated that he carried it for protection. The witness said he knows that Dru as “Scoob,” and “Scooby Dru.” He said Dru’s last name is complicated and starts with an “S” and has a “z” in it.

The male witness stated that he, and the two females stayed at the party for 3 to 4 hours, and they returned to the victim’s residence on Golden West Way. He stated that the three of them were seated in his vehicle parked in front of this residence for approximately 45 minutes to smoke marijuana. The victim said he saw a light-colored Hyundai passenger car drive by his vehicle slowly. The vehicle turned its lights off and turned down a dead-end street within view of his vehicle. Minutes later, the male witness observed what he believed to be two males approximately 5 yards away. They had approached his vehicle from the direction of which the light-colored Hyundai passenger car parked. One of these individuals was wearing a white shirt, and the other was wearing a black shirt. At least one of these suspects produced a handgun and began firing rounds into his vehicle. The witness stated he ducked, started the vehicle and fled the scene to the safety of friend’s residence, not near the scene. The witness said that the female victim had been shot in the mouth and was bleeding profusely. He told police he believes the motive of the shooting to be related to activity at Golden West Way. He did not believe that he, or the two females were the intended targets.

Police spoke with the female witness who corroborated the male witnesses account of the events but was able to provide further descriptions about the suspects and suspect vehicle. She advised that she was seated in the backseat of the car, and the victim was seated in the front passenger seat, and the male witness was seated in the driver seat. She said she witnessed a light colored (grey, white, or silver) Hyundai passenger vehicle pass their parked vehicle very slowly. She advised that vehicle was a newer model, with the new style of Maryland tags. She witnessed this vehicle turn its lights off after passing, and turn down a short, dead end street within their view. Minutes later, two males began approaching the vehicle on foot from the direction in which the suspect vehicle parked. She described one suspect as a male in a plain black shirt and described the second suspect as a male wearing a plain white shirt. Both suspects were wearing zip up hooded sweatshirts, one was gray and the other black. She could not recall which suspects were wearing which sweatshirt. She watched as they approached and ducked down as one or both subjects began firing at them. After the shooting stopped, she observed the victim bleeding from the mouth.

The shooting victim was driven to a friend’s residence on Tahoe Trail, where a resident at the house called the police.

Police conducted an interview with the victim’s 19-year-old brother. He was uncooperative during his interview and admitted to being at the party on Sixes Road earlier that evening and having a verbal altercation with Dru at the party. He described Dru as a thin, white male, in his 20’s with a beard. The brother said he returned home around the same time as the victim and went to bed inside the residence.

While in a vehicle on the way to the hospital, the victim’s brother told family members that he was at the party at Sixes Road and got into an argument with Dru. During the argument, Dru pulled out a gun and pointed it at him. The brother stated that he told Dru, “If you are going to pull it out and point it at me, pull the trigger.” At that point, he told his mother that Dru pointed the gun in the air and fired one round.

Police spoke to another witness who advised that the victim’s brother knows more about the incident than he will tell the police. During the interview, the witness received a phone call from the victim’s brother and placed the phone call on speaker phone so that a Detective could hear his statements. During this conversation, the Detective heard the victim’s brother say that he was at the party on Sixes Road. While at the party, he and Dru began to argue and postured to physically fight. Before they fought, a friend of pulled him away and told him “that man has a gun.” As his friend pulled him away, he heard a gunshot from the area where he and Dru had confronted each other.

Police located an additional witness that attended the party at Sixes Road, and they confirmed that there was an altercation that took place at this party that he did not personally witness. However, he was aware the altercation was going on from the noise. He advised this altercation ended when a single gunshot was fired in the area where the altercation was taking place. He identified Dru as Dru Michael Sultzaberger and confirmed that he was at the party on Sixes Road.

At approximately 10:15 a.m. on Sunday, Detectives from the Criminal Investigations Bureau responded to Sultzaberger’s residence pending the issuance of a search and seizure warrant. Detectives observed two vehicles in the parked in the driveway, a jeep and a silver Hyundai Sonata. At approximately 11:00 a.m, Detectives observed the Jeep occupied by a white male leaving the address and conducted a stop of this vehicle away from the residence in order to avoid alerting any other occupants at this residence. The driver of this Jeep was identified as John Michael Anderson Wood. Wood was wearing a black zip up sweatshirt and with a plain white tank top underneath. It was noted that this was the same description of clothing as provided by the victims. Wood was transported to the Sheriff’s Office to conduct a recorded interview. Wood confessed to going to the victim’s residence. He admitted to shooting at the vehicle with a .40 caliber Glock. He claimed to have fired 9 rounds, intending to shoot at the vehicle he believed to be associated with the victim’s brother. He stated that he knows of the victim and did not intend for her to get shot. After the incident, he immediately returned to Dru Sultzaberger’s residence. Wood refused to incriminate Sultzaberger, stating that Dru can speak to his part for himself.

At approximately 12:15 p.m., Detectives that were observing Sultzaberger’s residence observed Dru Sultzaberger leaving the front door of the residence. He was seen leaving the residence, and walking towards a wood line carrying a black duffle bag. Sultzaberger was arrested without incident. A search of the duffle bag revealed two loaded Glock handguns. One of the handguns was a Glock .40 caliber, loaded with silver .40 caliber ammunition. The other was a Glock 9mm loaded with 9mm brass ammunition. The firearms and ammunition were both consistent with the evidence recovered on the scene.

Sultzaberger was transported to the Sheriff’s Office to conduct an interview. During the interview, Sultzaberger confessed to bringing his Glock 9mm to the party on Sixes Rd. He stated he felt threatened by the victim’s brother, who threatened him and surrounded him with multiple other individuals. Sultzaberger admits to brandishing the gun and firing one round into the grass in front of him in order to protect himself. Sultzaberger left the party with John Wood in his mother’s silver Hyundai. Sultzaberger stated they both went back to his house, where they heard from other members at the party that a friend that defended Sultzaberger was assaulted after they left. Sultzaberger became so upset that he and John Wood traveled to the victim’s residence. Sultzaberger knew where it was through prior interactions. Sultzaberger stated that they drove past the residence, turned their lights off, and parked on a nearby side street. They saw the vehicle, which he believed belonged to the victim’s brother or one of his friends and fired what he believed to be 5 rounds with his Glock 9mm. Sultzaberger denies knowledge that the vehicle was occupied. Sultzaberger stated his intent was to “f##k up his car.” Sultzaberger returned to his residence with John Wood. Sultzaberger received information on Snap Chat that police were staged at Patuxent High School and he became scared. He packed ammunition, and both guns in a duffle bag, and left his residence on foot with the intent to get rid of the evidence. After leaving his residence on foot, he was encountered by deputies and was arrested with the duffle bag in hand. Both Sultzaberger and Wood are age 19, under the age of 21, and are prohibited from possessing the handguns used in this crime.

    If you pull the trigger while pointing a gun at another person then your intent is to kill that person and these two turds should be given life without the possibility of parole. They should not be rewarded with a lighter sentence just because they were failures at murder.

        Yes it is. Unarmed doesn’t always equal no danger. But on a side note, there are law enforcement agencies hiring like crazy. You should join up and show them how it is done but you are probably too cowardly. I mean it easier to sit here and complain and yet do nothing about it. Idiot.

        You would be wrong. Everyone should be accountable for their actions, even the police and politicians. Trump should go to jail for conspiring with a foreign entity and Hillary should already be in jail for mishandling classified information. As for the police, they have a tough job. They almost have to have a degree in psychology and psychiatry to do what they do. If someone is unarmed and running toward a group of school children yelling they are going to start breaking necks then that might be a justifiable shooting but if there is no danger to human life and the cop shoots they should be prosecuted like everyone else. Just like every murder it would all depend on the situation and if found guilty they should do life.

        • Anonymous on October 30, 2019 at 6:37 pm

          And this is a sensible answer to my question. I’m glad you thought of a reasonable answer instead of the usual boot licking, “you’re anti leo” comment. I believe everyone should be accountable and not all police are bad. The man that puts on a uniform to collect trash should be punished the same as the man that puts on a uniform to enforce the law if they commit the same crime.

          • Uranus on October 31, 2019 at 8:33 am

            I REALLY hate the “unarmed” argument. Its sensationalism. And it has absolutely no baring on anything. If I showed you 100 pictures of people, and asked you, “which of these people has a gun, and which doesnt”, would you be able to tell us? Of course not. Saying somebody was unarmed, is simply to make it look worse for the cops. Thats it. Are you really arguing that the only threat to an officer is someone who is armed?

            Just to make the point, you are arguing that if a person is unarmed, and runs at a police officer, and tackles him, the cop needs to just take a beating, he is not allowed to use his weapon. Thats stupid. Every circumstance is different, there isnt a black and white answer to the problem. Its all a gray area. Armed or not, cops dont shoot people who comply, follow direction, etc. It really isnt that hard. I watch Live PD every week, and it is SHOCKING how many people simply CANT follow simple instructions. Simply do what they say. I honestly think that in addition to your drivers test, in order to get your license you should have to pass a simulated traffic stop. The number of people that are clueless is scary. The people who get banged around, tasered, roughed up, etc, are the ones that cant follow simple instruction. Then they go and cry that the cops beat them up.

        I am for that too but this is Maryland and unfortunately they don’t have the death penalty. If I ruled the world and someone was found guilty of first degree murder beyond a reasonable doubt they would get 2 years to appeal. After the last failed appeal on the 2 year anniversary they would go straight to the execution room and not leave until they take the last breath of their worthless life. No more waiting 20 or 30 years to execute. This would go for pedophiles and some rapists too.

      I own multiple firearms. Was raised around firearms. Went to High School in an area where guns were in the students’ cars in the parking lot (to go hunting after school) and NOBODY ever pulled a gun to incite violence. It’s not “gun culture” it’s “trash culture” that causes what we’re reading about in this story. The sooner idiots like you get this through their thick skulls the sooner we can address the real problems. Lay blame on the criminals not the inanimate object.

          Have you ever heard of prohibition? Lets think about this, and I’ll walk you through it. Back in the day, they made alcohol illegal. What happened then? Then the people who knew how to make alcohol, made lots of it, and sold it illegally, and made a ton of money. But wait for it, that means the law to ban alcohol didnt work. Because people can just make their own. And those that can make their own, will make a ton of money on it.

          Lets apply this to guns. Have you ever heard of the term “gun smith”. This might blow your mind here, but there are actually people who can manufacture guns. I know, crazy right. So do you really think that guns will go away???

          Instead, why dont we just make it illegal to murder someone? Oh, wait…

      Based on the article it does not appear to be a case of self defense on the two males part.

      Even if she killed someone , which I’m not saying is what caused all this, it would not be up to the two males to impart justice ,,that’s why we have a legal system

      They took the law into their own hands and attempted to impart vigilante or retaliatory justice.

    Why do they put so much detail about a case prior to judgement.

    • Adam 12 on October 30, 2019 at 8:17 am

      Because people like you would complain that there’s not enough info if they don’t.

    Great job by Mike Evans and the Calvert County Sheriffs Office. Thank you for acting quickly and catching these two so they can hopefully get the proper justice they deserve.

    This is awful. Messers Wood and Sultzaberger should never be returned to our community. This behavior is intolerable. If convicted, justice demands prison sentences of sufficient duration, that upon completion of the sentence, Messers Wood and Sultzaberger can be no threat to the peace and security of our community. We need to monitor this case and sentencing associated with it to avoid the kind of inconsequential sentencing that takes place in Charles and Saint Marys counties. Our county needs to ensure the presiding judge takes a firm, severe stance when sentencing these two men.

    There isn’t any justification for a shooting..white,black, brown!! Period!!!
    Everybody has to be responsible for their own actions!!
    These were all young adults, when you play with fire, well, you know what happens!

    They needed the guns for protection. That is what 99% of all criminals say.

    This story has to be fake. The law says you have to be 21 to purchase a regulated firearm. I guess these turds didn’t get the memo.

    • Shawn on October 30, 2019 at 4:15 pm

      Daddy bought these firearms. daddy is law abiding and got them for protection. etc etc etc

      • Anonymous on October 31, 2019 at 4:13 pm

        Enforce the current laws and see the gun problem start to diminish. Get rid of all legal guns and you accomplish nothing except disarming law abiding citizens. The criminals will never willingly hand over their guns and criminals will always know how to get their hands on guns. Chicago and Baltimore have some of the strictest gun laws in the country yet have some of the highest rates of illegal guns per capita. People with your way of thinking are more dangerous then guns. You are willing to punish 99.99% of the population that can legally and responsibly own a gun just because 0.01% can’t control themselves. Next you will want to outlaw gambling, alcohol, fried food, etc… You would take away freedom after freedom until we have to check with the government before we take a piss.

        • Shawn on November 4, 2019 at 11:52 am

          legally bought guns kill more people than illegal guns. Because at one point in time all guns used in crimes were all built sold an bought in the US. Just like all criminals were once law abiding citizens.

    The question is where did the guns come from and how they get ahold of them. Where are any of the parents from the party, and why were 3 kids smoking pot outside of a house in a car past midnight. Why instead of shaming the kids we shame the parents of all involved for the way they are raised. Tell the kids not to hang with people or go places we don’t want them. My kids are going to head to college next year and never had any problems because I did just that. I own multiple guns and never worry about them doing anything dumb with them. The first place to stop the violence and bad decision making is at your home.

  31. Diana Bell on October 31, 2019 at 3:13 am

    I am HEART ❤ broken and at a total loss of words. I feel so very sorry for all of the innocent young lady who was shot for no reason at all? I hope and pray that God will touch you and heal you! This is so very sad and what happens when drugs are involved. Drugs, Guns, & Video Game Games are destroying our young people. We raise our children and grandchildren and teach them right from wrong. Once they are 18 years old and adults they are adults and make their own decisions.We are not responsible for their actions. I wish that I could wave a magic wand and make it all go away but I can’t. Johnmichael is going to have to accept responsibility for his own actions and face the consequences!

    • Anonymous on October 31, 2019 at 4:19 pm

      Actually parents are responsible to a point. They may be adults at 18 but if they were not taught proper values like honor, respect for others, integrity, and conflict resolution skills as a child they sure as hell aren’t going to learn them on the street as an adult. Some young people are just destined to be bad and others didn’t get the proper tools growing up to know any better. Only he and his parents know what category he falls into.

    why doesn’t anyone get the address for the party on sixes road and go get some eye witnesses. If they were there for more than 3 hours someone has to see something and it will prove if he shot the ground or in the sky. im sure underage drinking is the last thing they are worried about right now. someone please help this girls family out. SHE GOT SHOT IN THE FACE. what if that was you and no one stepped up to help you out. I give props to the driver for ducking and driving away. the car could have blown up if they shot the gas tank.

    Why would you want to F**K up the car it might not even be his they were driving around in his moms hyundai
