Police Investigate Shooting in Montgomery County
A man has been shot in the chest in Montgomery County this morning, but law enforcement authorities said it was too early to tell if the shooting was connected to the serial sniper who has killed nine people and injured three others this month.
Police are investigating the scene in Aspen Hill, Md., where traffic is shut down on Connecticut Ave. Police have also closed the Capitol Beltway in both directions at the American Legion Bridge, causing severe traffic delays across the region.
The man was shot when he was standing on the entrance to a bus, local reports just said.
