UPDATE:
 
Since the day of Mr. Dickinson’s murder, the homicide unit has been working in conjunction with the Anne Arundel County State’s Attorney’s Office in regards to this investigation. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner conducted an autopsy on the victim, Mr. Dickinson, and ruled the cause of death as a gunshot wound with the manner being homicide. Homicide detectives have been working diligently in sorting through the evidence seized and analyzed in this investigation.  During the execution of the search warrant on the suspect’s residence on September 18, 2019 several items of evidence were recovered by the Evidence Collection Unit. The murder weapon, a shotgun, was recovered in the garage of the residence and throughout the house another thirteen firearms and associated ammunition were seized. The Anne Arundel County Crime Lab tested several items of suspected controlled dangerous substances also recovered in the residence and surrounding property that were verified to be cocaine, morphine, suboxone and marijuana.
 
Through witness interviews it was learned the suspect owed the victim money. The victim indicated he was going to come to the suspects house unarmed. An analysis of digital/electronic evidence indicated exchanges between the suspect, Mr. Korwek, and the victim, Mr. Dickinson, on the morning just prior to the shooting. Text conversations indicated Mr. Dickinson was going to Mr. Korwek’s residence unarmed and even indicated no threats of violence. Mr. Korwek told the victim he was not welcome.
 
Through interviews and evidence at the scene Jeffrey Dickinson arrived at the residence of Mr. Korwek on a gas powered scooter. Mr. Korwek had armed himself with a shotgun and shortly after Mr. Dickinson’s arrival shot and killed him in the driveway of his residence. Investigation has revealed that there were no indications of a physical confrontation taking place between Mr. Korwek and Mr. Dickinson. The evidence at the scene determined the victim, Mr. Dickinson, did not possess or utilize any weapons when he arrived at the suspect’s residence.

 Fatal Crash / Glen Burnie
 
On December 11, 2019 at approximately 3:15 p.m., officers responded to Dorsey Road at the intersection with McPherson Rd in in Glen Burnie for a two vehicle crash.
 
A 2003 Chevrolet was traveling westbound on Dorsey Road when it proceeded to make a left hand turn onto McPherson Road. At the same time, a 2005 Nissan was travelling eastbound on Dorsey Road approaching the intersection. The investigation revealed that the Chevrolet continued with its left turn and pulled into the path of the Nissan causing the vehicles to collide. The occupant of the Chevrolet was transported to R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore where he was later pronounced deceased. The driver of the Nissan was transported to the Baltimore Washington Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.
 
Preliminarily, the primary cause of the crash appears to be the driver of the Chevrolet failing to yield right of way to the Nissan. Speed does not appear to be a factor. Drugs and/or alcohol use are not believed to be a factor in this crash. The Traffic Safety Section is handling the investigation.
