Maryland Man Killed by Police During High Risk Warrant

Maryland Man Killed by Police During High Risk Warrant
Maryland Man Killed by Police During High-Risk Warrant

Potomac, Maryland-(Ammoland.com)- On Thursday at 4:30 AM, a police Special Operations Division Tactical Unit executed a “high-risk” search warrant at the Potomac Maryland house of 21-year-old Duncan Socrates Lemp. During the raid, police shot and killed Lemp.

Potomac is a wealthy suburb of Washington DC. It is located on the Potomac River in Montgomery County. The town has a low crime rate. It is one of the safest places in the DC area.

Sources close to the investigation said that this was a “no-knock” raid. In this type of raid, police do not knock and instead break down the door to gain entry into the home. The thinking is that by using the element of surprise, it lessens the risk on the officers serving the warrant.

Others believe that a no-knock raid increases the danger because the occupants could mistake the police for home invaders. There have been no-knock warrants served on the wrong houses in the past that lead to the police shooting innocent homeowners and homeowners shooting police.

The police received a complaint that Lemp had possession of firearms even though police say he was prohibited from owning guns. It isn’t clear as to why Lemp was prohibited from possessing firearms. A search for a criminal history record for Lemp only returned traffic tickets.

Lemp was active on social media. He was an active Three Percenter and libertarian who frequented Reddit and the infamous image message board 4Chan. He was a strong proponent of the Second Amendment and Cryptocurrency. Friends described him as fiercely pro-American with a deep respect for the US Constitution.

Police say that Lemp confronted them and forced an officer to open fire, killing him. Local law enforcement representatives would not give details anymore on the raid or how Lemp confronted officers. The family disputes police claims.

“Lemp was prohibited from possessing firearms and detectives were following up on a complaint from the public that Lemp, though prohibited, was in possession of firearms,” police said in a statement released to the press. “Detectives recovered three rifles and two handguns from the residence.”

Among the guns recovered by police were a Glock 26 and an IWI Tavor X95. Police did not release the other makes and models of the firearms that they claim that Lemp had in his possession.

The family insists that the police shot Lemp as he was sleeping in bed. They say that the bullet that struck Lemp came through the window from outside of the house. Lemp shared the house with his 19-year-old brother and parents. They insist that the police did not give any warnings to the family.

Rene Sandler, an attorney for the Lemp family, says that the family is sure the shots came from outside. She states that it was not a flashbang that penetrated the window, as some have speculated.

Sandler said that the family had been traumatized by the police action led to the death of Duncan Lemp. She said that the family wants to see everyone involved in the killing be brought to justice.

“We believe that the body camera footage and other forensic evidence from this event will support what Duncan’s family already knows, that he was murdered,” the lawyer’s statement said.

Howard County, which neighbors Montgomery County will be investigating the shooting to determine whether it was justified or not. The Howard County attorney’s office did not respond to our request for comment.

@SM – See constitution, raid was illegal. Whoever ordered the raid as well as all participants engaged in illegal activity resulting in an entirely foreseeable death. That makes it murder regardless of details of what actually happened inside the house. Just as someone who drove home invaders to a house are often charged with murder if the homeowner shoots the actual invading accomplices.

all we can hope for is that people get the jump on LE and they are ready and waiting with the firepower to take out anyone who comes through their front door. unfortunately that’s hard to do when you’re completely asleep at 0430. but just keep your weapon by your side in bed with you and hopefully you can set up before they breach. then take them all out one by one.

Well these particular jack booted thugs were skulking around the exterior of the house and were able to see him through a window, whereupon they fired on him through that window. If one is concerned about being assaulted, I would start with making sure the windows are fully blocked with blackout curtains, or something else fully opaque. If your home is brick, maybe have your bed against the exterior wall so you have cover while you’re sleeping in case they fire bullets into the room from the window.

This isn’t the first time a Blue Line Death Squad murdered someone to take away lawfully owned firearms. Moreover, Mr. Lemp was a computer programmer working on a new kind of encryption that would be impossible for the government to crack, a technology that the government would gladly and without hesitation commit murder to keep people from obtaining to protect their Right to privacy.

I’m curious. Assuming that the police were going after this guy because he was not allowed to have weapons, under what circumstances do you believe a no-knock “high risk” warrant execution would be morally proper? I have racked my brain thoroughly, and as a member of society, usually we talk with others when there is an issue. I dont see how things can turn out positive if the sole presence of firearms (actual or alleged) means the individual possessing them is a threat, and law enforcement immediately reverts to force. There is no room for error at that point. A… Read more »

My fear would be the lack of absolute control over the device, in that it can put you down through an unseen reflection just as fast as your intended target.

S.W. They work good on cows. Took about 27 seconds. Using house wired 110. Use a 1 X 2, about 4′ of metal drainage pipe with a back plate on it. That keeps flying in one direction. Be careful with that condenser. The book will give you ideas and instructions. As long as the unit is surrounded by a metal barrel of some type everything goes out the tube hole. Probably as safe or safer than running the nuker at home.

@StWayne – Another unintended side effect is that if I am called to serve on a jury involving murder of a police officer, I will be quite sympathetic to the defense. Conversely if I am on a jury against police for excess use of force, I will be quite sympathetic to the plaintiff. Of course if defense for use of force is fear of civil asset forfeiture, that could cover a multitude of situations. In most states law frowns upon deadly force in protection of insured property – however I have never heard of insurance covering theft by government agents,… Read more »

Things can go to Hell in hand basket within a heartbeat. It’s incumbent on the police to announce their intentions so there can be no misunderstanding. This is where a “no-knock” warrant can go sideways in the same amount of time it takes someone to panic.

Not only that but dogs:

3) never need repair
4) don’t need to be turned off and on
5) a snarling, barking dog throwing himself at the door from inside gives all intruders (even those with badges) food for thought
6) no false alarms

Well, OK… maybe not #6. Mine does go off occasionally for no reason just like electronics do. But not as often. 🙂

The only reason for these type of raids is to frighten the population into submitting all of their freedoms and rights to the psychopathic control freaks in power.

Police claim to have feared for their lives in many situations where a dispassionate outside observer can see that fear was not justified, yet the dead are just as dead and usually shooting is considered justified. How is the described situation different, other than that police have inserted themselves into both situations, usually at a time and place of their choosing, with opportunity to mentally prepare themselves, and police really are armed and willing to shoot – in contrast to kid holding cell… Read more »

This is life in a blue utopia. Get used to it. Tactics once reserved for DEA raids on pot smokers are now being directed at thought criminals. Interesting to note they do not source the reason Lemp was a prohibited person.

All US rolling stock is assigned alpha-numeric reporting marks issued by the Association of American Railroads.

You are either completely gullible or just a dumb fuck who posts stupid shit. My guess is both.

The body count needs to start stacking the other way on these unConstitutional raids.
