Two men were rushed to the hospital after being shot in front of the McDonald’s on Gunners Branch Rd. in Germantown last Tuesday Night.

Officers were called to the scene of the double shooting at about 6:30 p.m. The Montgomery County Police identified the victims as a 26-year-old male, who suffered a gunshot wound to his upper body, and a 27-year-old male, who was shot in his lower body. After suffering gunshots wounds, the victims went into the McDonald’s to call for help.  The men were transported to a nearby hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

“Just after six in a shopping center at a restaurant is a busy time of day. We’re fortunate that more people weren’t hurt,” Captain Paul Starks with Montgomery County Police told ABC 7 News.

“I could hear the gunshots outside of my bedroom window,” CHS junior Seqoui Sample said.

A bullet hole was visible in the front window of McDonald’s, which is in the Fox Chapel shopping center. The bullet that was visible almost struck a baby high chair in the restaurant Montgomery County Police confirmed.

“I rode by the McDonald’s and seen glass shattered,” CHS senior Corey Bullington commented.

The police are still looking for a suspect(s) and a cause of the shooting.  At this time, police believe there could be two suspects who fled from the scene.

“It’s crazy how so many people are getting shot in Germantown now,” Bullington also stated.

Investigators believe that this was not a random event and there is some prior association between the suspect(s) and the victims.
