Detectives Investigate Two Pellet Gun Assaults in the Briggs Chaney area; Surveillance Video Released

For Immediate Release: Tuesday, January 30, 2018

Detectives from the Montgomery County Police Department – 3rd District Patrol Investigations Unit are investigating two reports of people being struck by a projectile from a pellet gun. Today, investigators are releasing surveillance video of the suspect and are asking for the public’s help in identifying him.

On Monday, January 29, 3rd District officers responded to the 14100 block of Aldora Circle for the report of an adult male who had been struck by pellets shot at him while he was outside of his home. Approximately six minutes later, officers responded to the 13800 block of Outlet Drive for the report of two adult females who had also been stuck by pellets. The three victims were not injured in these shootings.

Detectives obtained surveillance video from a business also located on Outlet Drive which revealed that the suspect entered the business prior to the Outlet Drive assault.  Detectives believe the January 29 incident is related to a January 23 incident where a victim was also struck by pellets in the 3050 block of Briggs Chaney Road.

Anyone with information regarding these incidents or the identity of the suspect is asked to call the 3rd District Patrol Investigations Unit at 240-773-6800.
