WASHINGTON — A man was shot and killed in broad daylight at Edgewood Park in Silver Spring.

Montgomery County Police responded to the park on Robey Road around 4:45 p.m. Thursday for the report of a shooting. Upon arrival, police found a 22-year-old man suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead on the scene.

County Police Cpt. Paul Starks says he was found about 25 yards down a foot path past a playground.

“The fact that there was more than one call to our 9-1-1 center and that it was a nice day this afternoon would speak that there were people in the area who at least heard the sound of shots,” Starks says.

Police are asking anyone with information about this incident to call police at 240-773-5070.

This is a developing story.
