Man found dead outside Wheaton home
Montgomery County police are investigating the death of a man found with a gunshot wound to the upper body outside a home across from Wheaton High School early Wednesday.
About an hour after the 27-year-old victim was found on Randolph Road at about 1 a.m., another man, also 27, walked into the local police station and claimed responsibility for the killing, police said.
He was taken into custody and transported to police headquarters for questioning.
Police said the victim and another man, age 22, had arrived at the residence sometime before the shooting. A confrontation between the men in the front yard then turned deadly, police said.
Police are investigating the shooting as a homicide.
