Four Officers Fired at Germantown Man Who’s Been Charged with Six Counts of Assault
Montgomery County Police have charged the man who was shot by police in a Germantown cul-de-sac on Sunday afternoon.
At 2:41 pm officers were called to the unit block of Cross Laurel Court in Germantown for the report of a man with a gun pointing it at others and acting odd. According to police, the man, who has been identified as 26-year-old Devin Conlon Brunner, he lives in the cul-de-sac.
Montgomery County Police report that four officers fired at Brunner after he refused to comply with their orders to drop the weapon and he pointed the gun at the officers. Police spokesman, Rebecca Innocenti, did not say how many of the four officers who fired, actually struck Brunner, or how many times he was shot.
Once the shooting stopped, officers rendered first aid and called for Fire and Rescue personnel. Brunner was transported to a local hospital for treatment where he remains. He is expected to survive.
Upon investigation revealed that the gun that Brunner had in his possession was a pellet gun designed to resemble an authentic firearm.
Police say, Brunner was outside in the parking area of the townhouse community on Cross Laurel Court pointing the gun at numerous homes. A neighbor called 9-1-1 stating that when he went outside, the suspect pointed a handgun at him. The caller went back into his home and told another resident about the situation. Both residents looked out the window and observed the suspect pointing the handgun at them, according to police.
