During a welfare check, police found a 19-year-old dead inside a Grasonville home.
Deputies from the Queen Anne's County Office of the Sheriff, as well as other law enforcement agencies, went to Fisher Manor around 4:30 on Sunday afternoon. When they got to the scene, deputies found Maiky Jerrally Ferreras, 19, on the second floor of his home with a gunshot wound.
