Man, 40, Arrested in Federal Hill Killing Off-Duty Howard County Deputy

BALTIMORE — Baltimore Police announced the department has made an arrest in the killing of an off-duty Howard County deputy in Federal Hill in a press conference Saturday afternoon.

Jewel Crowder, 40, of Baltimore, was taken into custody without incident by S.W.A.T and Warrant Apprenhesion Task Force on Friday around 5:30 p.m., according to Baltimore Police.

Crowder has been charged with first degree murder.

The shooting took place overnight Friday at Wayward Bar and Kitchen, located at 1117 South Charles Street. 

Police said that on shortly after 12:00 a.m., two groups of individuals got into a verbal and physical altercation at the bar, right inside the front door.  

Wayward security staff removed both parties, and the alteration moved to the outdoor seating area in front of Mother’s, an adjacent restaurant and bar.  

That’s where police say a man shot 23-year-old Ryan Demby four times in the torso.  

Medics arrived shortly after and rushed Demby to Shock Trauma, where he was pronounced dead.  

Demby was an off-duty Howard County Sheriff’s Deputy.  

“Our hearts are broken for the Demby family, Ryan’s friends and colleagues, and our entire sheriff’s office family,” the department said. 

Governor Wes Moore also made a statement on Demby’s killing.  

“My heart goes out to the friends, family, and colleagues of Ryan Demby–and all those who knew him and loved him. In raising his hand to serve as sheriff’s deputy, he made the courageous choice to protect our communities–and should still be with us today,” Moore said in a statement Friday.

Anyone with further information relating to the shooting is urged to call Baltimore Homicide Detectives at 410-396-2100.
