Rockville shooting suspect sought by police

Montgomery County police detectives are asking for the public's help in locating the suspect in a shooting in Rockville last Friday night, October 7, 2022 around 9:20 PM. Minutes later, officers responded to a report of shots fired in the 12900 block of Twinbrook Parkway. The first officer to arrive at the scene saw a black male, approximately 30 years of age, with short black hair. This individual was also wearing a black jacket, blue jeans, and a baseball cap.

The officer noticed the man was allegedly holding a black handgun with an extended magazine down at his side. As the officer exited his unmarked vehicle, the man began to raise his arm to point the gun at the officer. When the officer identified himself, and ordered the man to drop his weapon, the man complied but fled on foot.

Upon examination, detectives determined the gun was a black "Privately Made Firearm (PMF)" with a 30-round extended magazine. County and Rockville City police officers who scoured the area located multiple shell casings.

Anyone with information is asked to call the police non-emergency number at (301) 279-8000 (24-hour line) or the Montgomery County Police-1st District Investigative Section at (240) 773-6084.
