Two people were shot — including one man who died — on Thursday evening near the D.C.-Maryland line, police said.

Police wrote on Twitter Thursday that there was a shooting investigation in the 4500 block of Western Avenue in Friendship Heights and that they were looking for a man in his 20s or 30s wearing all black.

The area is along the Maryland-D.C. border.

Sean Hickman, a spokesman for the Metropolitan Police Department, wrote in an email that officers got a call for a shooting in the area around 7:39 p.m. When they got to the scene, they found a man unconscious and not breathing. He was taken to the hospital and pronounced dead, Hickman wrote.

Another man who was shot was found in Montgomery County and taken to a hospital, Hickman wrote.

He wrote that the investigation is ongoing and the department’s Homicide Branch is involved.

Officer Rick Goodale, a Montgomery County police spokesman, wrote in an email that D.C. police are handling the investigation.
