Man who was shot, killed at Frederick County home had a no-contact order; no charges filed against woman who shot him

Authorities say a fight occurred between a woman and 52-year-old Danny Ray Sidders. The woman shot and killed Sidders, who was barred from contacting her.

GREEN VALLEY, Md. — A domestic fight led to a shooting in Green Valley on Sunday morning, authorities say, and a man who was not legally allowed to be at a Penn Shop Road address is dead. 

According to the Frederick County Sheriff's Office, Danny Ray Sidders, 52, of Orlando, Florida, was shot and killed by a woman at a residence in the 13200 block of Penn Shop Road after a fight took place. 

Sidders had a protective order issued against him that was supposed to prevent him from being at the address.

The woman was brought in for questioning on Sunday after Frederick County deputies responded to the home for a shooting and found Sidders dead inside.

According to investigators, the call about a shooting came in around 11 a.m.

When deputies arrived, they called for anyone inside to come out.

Police then said the woman came outside and cooperated with officers before they entered the home and found a man dead inside. 

The woman was then taken to the Frederick County Law Enforcement Center for questioning.

The sheriff's office on Monday said that the woman "fully cooperated with the FCSO," including undergoing "hours" of interviews. There are no charges filed against the woman, pending further investigations. 

However, for hours on Sunday, police tape surrounded the home.

Three officers could be seen in the driveway, with two of them entering the house every so often.

Kayla Wilson lives a few doors down from the home where the shooting was reported and said it was concerning to hear about the police response. 

"I didn’t see anything. I found out through a text from a friend," she said. "You just don’t want to hear about things like that happening anywhere, let alone three doors down.” 

While Penn Shop Road can get busy during times of the day, Wilson described the neighborhood as quiet with residents who often keep to themselves.

She told WUSA9 that she didn't know the people inside the home where police responded but she hoped investigators could figure out what happened. 

"Hopefully they get to the bottom of it and get some answers for the family," Wilson said. 

Anyone with additional information about the incident is asked to contact the FCSO at 301-600-1046 and reference case #22-021574.
