Germantown gunshots investigated
Montgomery County detectives are looking for help unraveling an incident in which a number of shots were fired near Germantown homes on Aug. 31.
Someone told police that around 11:40 p.m., he heard approximately 15 gunshots in the area behind his home in the 13000 block of Country Ridge Drive.
The man found an apparent bullet hole in a rear wall, police said in a Monday press release. Officers also found that two bullets had entered another townhouse in the same block as the man's house; another bullet hole was found in a window in a home in the 13100 block of Twilight Court.
Twelve spent casings were found in the area, police said.
Nobody was hurt in the incident, police said. Witnesses saw a small "light-colored" vehicle driving in the area around the time of the shots, but no suspects were seen. Police are asking anyone with information to call (240) 773-6254.
