Fed up with rising crime, Silver Spring man shoots at thieves breaking into his car
A resident of Rossiter Court, the man told police he had a gun, and had just shot at the three suspects after they stole something from his car. He surrendered his weapon to police. Moments later, a 911 call reported a shooting victim in the 1300 block of Elm Grove Circle. Police say the 18-year-old man - who was not identified by police, despite being an adult - was suffering from a gunshot wound to the lower body. His injury was not life-threatening, and he was transported to an unidentified hospital.
One of the accomplices was taken into custody, and another juvenile was captured on Good Hope Road. Those two juvenile accomplices have been charged with theft.
