Montgomery County police were alerted a few minutes after 10 p.m. The victim was taken to an undisclosed hospital in what was believed to be stable condition. As of 11:30 p.m., police had not received confirmation on the victim’s status.
Investigators have not yet pinpointed the scene of the shooting more specifically than “in this Montgomery Village corridor.”
“It didn’t take place here; the victim came here,” said Capt. Dinesh Patil. “We’re back-tracking now to locate a scene.”
The victim was not identified and there were no suspects; K-9 units were deployed.
“We know that we have an adult male shot, and we’re trying to put the rest of the pieces together,” Patil said.
