EASTON, Md.- Police have arrested the suspect in a homicide that occurred Thursday morning at the Easton YMCA.

Easton police identified the victim as John Joseph Cassidy, 72, of Easton. The suspect was identified as Andre LaMont Price Jefferson, 31, also of Easton. Early Thursday evening, police announced that they arrested Jefferson on first and second degree murder charges, as well as assault and robbery.

Police said that just before 8 a.m., officers were dispatched to the Easton YMCA on Peachblossom Road for what is being described as an "altercation." Upon arrival, officers located Jefferson lying on the lobby floor. Police said Cassidy was located on the floor of the men’s locker room, suffering from stab wounds.

Both men were transported by ambulance to the University of Maryland Shore Medical Center in Easton. Cassidy later succumbed to his injuries at the hospital.

Jefferson was treated and was released to police custody. According to police, the investigation revealed that an altercation occurred in the men’s locker room where Jefferson made contact with Cassidy. Police said Jefferson allegedly attacked Cassidy with a knife and then tried to leave before members of the YMCA stopped him.

The motive and any known relationship between the two are still under investigation.

EASTON — The man charged with a fatal stabbing at the Easton YMCA will remain held without bond as his case heads to circuit court for trial.

Andre Lamont Price Jefferson, 31, of Easton, is charged with first-degree murder in the homicide of John Joseph Cassidy, 72, of Easton.

“This was a brutal, unprovoked, vicious homicide in a place the community gathers,” Grunden said, noting Cassidy was a “random victim.”
