Montgomery shooting victim was Pr. George's man

Mary Pat Flaherty

Montgomery County police found the county's first homicide victim of the year early Tuesday, an 18-year-old man who had been reported missing since late November in Prince George's County, authorities said.

Montgomery police identified the victim as Alex Nando Roman, of an unknown address. He had been shot just off a road in the Mount Zion area of Brookeville, about 14 miles north of the Capital Beltway.

He was found shortly before 2 a.m.

A motorist in the 4900 block of Brookeville Road saw the body on a long driveway, about 30 feet from the road. Police and medics arrived, but the man was pronounced dead, police said.

Authorities said the killing does not appear to have been random, and police were looking into reports of drug use in the area.

Police ask anyone with information to call 240-773-5070 or 1866-411-TIPS (8477).

To nativeva1 - don't be so judgmental. how do you infer that he was in a gang from this article? Is every 18-year-old who gets shot in a gang?

It's hard to understand how a horrible murder like this one can occur and it is basically covered in the paper for a day with no follow up. Are we that cold of a society that the press infers that we don't care about it the next day or that our short attention spans don't allow us to want to know the full story? There must be something more to this story (and others) that we never get to read about.
