Montgomery County police are investigating a man who died Friday night in what appears to have been a shooting.

Officers were called to the Forest Park Apartment complex for the report of a shooting on Piney Branch Road around 11:30 p.m. Friday and found a man on the sidewalk.

“It appeared that he was suffering from gunshot wounds,” police spokeswoman Shiera Goff told Bethesda Beat on Saturday.

The man died at the scene, police said. His identity has not yet been released.

Goff said that a medical examiner will ultimately determine whether the man was shot.

Police did not provide additional information on Saturday and said they are investigating the case as a homicide. Anyone with information is asked to call the Major Crimes Division at 240-773-5070.
