Homicide Victim Identified as Germantown Teenager

April 30, 2017

Late Saturday evening, Montgomery County Police released the identity of the homicide victim who was shot and killed as part of a quadruple shooting in Germantown shortly before 1:00 am on April 29.

   Police said Amaru Amir Santos Johnson, 19, of the 12100 block of Birdseye Terrace in Germantown succumbed to a gunshot wound in the hospital after he and three other people were shot inside of townhouse on Kitchen House Way in Germantown.

   According to police, at approximately 12:55 am Saturday morning, the Emergency Communications Center received multiple calls for a shooting that had just occurred inside of a residence in the 12800 block of Kitchen House Way.  Officers from the 5th District along with Fire and Rescue personnel responded and located two adult male victims, one of whom was Johnson, and two adult female victims at the home suffering from apparent gunshot wounds.  Johnson was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.  The three remaining victims were transported to local hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries.

   Montgomery County Fire Rescue Service senior spokesman Pete Piringer reported on Twitter that MCFRS EMS transported five patients to local hospitals, four with gunshot wounds, and one injured from a fall.

   Police did not speculate on a motive or any circumstances surrounding this shooting and provide any descriptions of any potential suspects. However, they said the investigation is ongoing and that they need the public’s help.
