Is gang violence worsening in Montgomery County? There is no official word yet of gang involvement in a violent assault last night in Aspen Hill, but many residents have expressed concern about gangs in the area. This time the weapon of choice was a knife, rather than a gun. Wednesday night at 8:24 PM, Montgomery County Police responded to a report of an assault at the Sunoco gas station in Aspen Hill, at 14031 Georgia Avenue.
