Sixth District officers responded to that address for the report of shots fired. As officers began their investigation several neighbors stated that they had heard what they thought were gunshots. Blood was observed on the sidewalk. During the investigation an individual arrived who stated that he had just taken a friend suffering from gunshot wounds to a local hospital. The victim, a 19-year-old male from Montgomery Village, was suffering from life-threatening injuries and was flown from that hospital to an area trauma center. He remains in critical condition and is now expected to survive.
Through the course of the investigation it was learned that two black males were seen running from the area and then getting into a gold Honda, possibly an Accord. The car was observed leaving at a high rate of speed.
