Updated Information

See the 2010 Montgomery County Homicide Map

Detectives from the Montgomery County Police Major Crimes Division – Homicide/Sex Section are investigating the death of a 23-year-old male.

Last night at approximately 10:45 p.m., officers from the 6th District and the Gaithersburg Police Department responded to the Lake Forest Transit Center for the report of one person shot. The transit center is located on Lost Knife Road near the intersection of Odenhal Avenue. Upon arrival officers found the victim suffering from at least one suspected gunshot wound to his body. Fire/Rescue personnel also had responded and transported the victim to Shady Grove Hospital where he succumbed to his wounds.

Preliminary investigation revealed that the victim was at the transit center when he was approached by a male subject. There may have been a brief verbal exchange between the two men prior to the subject shooting the victim at least once and fleeing the scene on foot. Investigators are working to confirm the suspect’s descriptor information. More details will be released when those facts are validated.

The circumstances that led to this death are still under investigation. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore will complete an autopsy in an effort to determine the cause and manner of death. The identity of the victim will be released after family members have been notified.

Anyone who can provide information related to this death is asked to call the Major Crimes Division at 240.773.5070. Anyone who wishes to remain anonymous may call Crime Solvers of Montgomery County toll-free at 1-866-411-TIPS (8477). Crimes Solvers will pay a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information provided to them that leads to an arrest and/or indictment of the person(s) responsible for this crime.
