Germantown Resident Shoots Intruder After Early Morning Burglary

April 1, 2017

Montgomery County Police detectives from the Major Crimes Unit are investigating the events that led to a Germantown resident shooting a burglar overnight on Saturday, April 1.

   According to MCPD spokesman Capt. Paul Starks, the two adult residents 11710 Tall Pines Drive in Germantown were awoke the sounds of someone in their house and called 911 at 2:11 am on April 1. The resident went downstairs in the house and found a burglar and sometime before police arrived, the resident shot the intruder.

   Officers from District 5-Germantown arrived and found an adult male suspect on the ground in the backyard of the house with an apparent gunshot wound. Police called Montgomery County Fire Rescue units who arrived and transported the intruder to a local hospital in serious condition, suffering from life-threatening injuries as result of the gunshot wound.

   Detectives continue to investigate, and police would not release any more information about the incident until the investigation is complete.

   The single-family house sits in the middle of a cul-de-sac on Tall Pines Drive in the Cedar Valley neighborhood of Germantown.

   Neighbor Kippy Song lives next door to the house where the burglary and shooting took place. He said that his wife heard a loud bang in the middle of the night, but that she didn’t wake him up until she saw the lights from the police cars.

    “There have been a lot of strange cars in the cul-de-sac in recent weeks, and yesterday somebody was at my door trying force entry into the house,” said Song. He said the neighborhood, where he’s been living for 20 years has changed and not for the better.”
