1 Dead, 1 Injured After 2 Masked Men Target Waldorf Home

One man was killed and another was injured after two masked men forced their way into a Waldorf, Maryland, home Tuesday morning.

After entering the home in the 11500 block of Terrace Drive about 4:15 a.m., the masked men demanded money and began hitting the men, according to the Charles County Sheriff's Office.

They fired several shots at 34-year-old Michael Keith Beers, killing him, the sheriff's office said. A 32-year-old man jumped out of a window to escape, and a 52-year-old woman and a woman in her 20s also safely got out of the house.

The woman in her 20s, who police said was partially clothed, disappeared.

The other woman, who lives at the house, was a longtime friend of Beers, News4's Pat Collins reported.

“She had been like a mom to him,” a friend said.

Investigators believe the masked men targeted Beers.

“I think as the investigation moves on we’ll learn more about this house and what was going on inside,” sheriff’s spokeswoman Diane Richardson said.

The 32-year-old man refused to go to the hospital. 

No arrests have been made.
