For Immediate Release: Tuesday, November 19, 2013

Detectives from the Montgomery County Police - Major Crimes Division are investigating an incident where officers shot and killed a man who was armed with a rifle.

On Monday, November 18 at approximately 9:15 p.m., Montgomery County Police received a call from a man who reported that he had just shot and killed two people at a residence in the 19000 block of Red Robin Terrace in Germantown.

When officers arrived in the area, they determined that the suspect had left the residence and was on foot and armed.  Officers then heard shots being fired in the neighborhood, called for additional tactical resources, and established a perimeter to contain the suspect.

A short time later, police officers encountered the suspect at Great Seneca Highway and Grotto Lane.  The suspect was armed with a rifle and refused to comply with the officers' commands.  The suspect was subsequently shot and was pronounced deceased at the scene.

Officers searched the residence on Red Robin Terrace and determined that no one had been shot.  The identity of the suspect is not being released at this time.

As is standard procedure, the involved officers have been placed on paid, administrative leave pending the outcome of this investigation.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the Major Crimes Division at 240-773-5070.
