3 sought after Gaithersburg shooting

Detectives in Montgomery County are asking for help locating a suspect in an Aug. 7 shooting.

Police responded to the 300 block of North Summit Avenue in Gaithersburg about 10:55 p.m. on Aug. 7 for a report of a shooting, according to a police news release. They found a 25-year-old Gaithersburg man suffering from a gunshot wound from which he is recovering.

An investigation determined that four men forced their way into a residence and got into a fight with the victim, police said, after which one of the men shot the victim with a handgun.
