The Hagerstown man who allegedly shot at a Frederick County Sheriff’s deputy during a foot pursuit early Friday has a violent criminal history.

18 March 2022 – Abolajo Bello Lookman-Khalil, 28, Hagerstown, reportedly failed to stop for suspected DUI and speeding violations.  Shortly before 3:00 a.m., Lookman-Khalil reportedly bailed out of his vehicle, attempted to flee the scene, and opened fire on a deputy who returned fire, striking him in the face and shoulder.

Lookman-Khalil is currently wanted by three police agencies in Maryland on a multitude of charges stemming from failure to appear violations caused by driving on a suspended license. 

“The suspect has four warrants out,” Todd WivellSpokesperson/PIO at Frederick County Sheriff’s Office said. “Two with the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office, one is for child support. “The other one is for failure to appear, driving on a suspended [license].” 

In 2016, Lookman-Khalil was one of three suspects charged in a shots-fired incident.  The Maryland Coordination and Analysis Center reports Lookman-Khalil was sentenced to three years in prison with all of the term suspended except for the time he served. 

During a press conference, Frederick County Sheriff Chuck Jenkins said that his agency will lead the investigation into this deputy-involved shooting citing a decision by the attorney general’s office.  

Charges are pending in Friday’s shooting case.
