SILVER SPRING, Md. (WDVM) — A 19-year-old filming a music video was critically injured after a drive-by shooting took place in the 900 block of Silver Spring Ave. Thursday night.
Around 10:15 p.m. on Jan. 6, a Montgomery County Police officer was patrolling the area when she heard shots fired and saw people running from the area.
With additional backup called for assistance, police found a 19-year-old man with a gunshot wound to his leg. He was found in an alley behind Fire Station 1 restaurant and Brewing Co.
