Montgomery County police officer shot in downtown Silver Spring, shooter at-large
The Montgomery County police department has confirmed that a County police officer was shot this morning in downtown Silver Spring. Who shot the officer, who is being taken to Medstar Washington Hospital Center, is currently unknown. No suspects have been identified publicly yet, and the shooter or shooters remain at-large.
Police first reported the shooting in the vicinity of Ellsworth Drive and Fenton Street around 9:10 AM this morning. There is, understandably, heavy police activity in downtown Silver Spring at this hour. Expect potential road closures along Fenton Street at Wayne Avenue, Cedar Street at Wayne Avenue, and Georgia Avenue at both Spring Street and near the Beltway interchange.
