Man killed in hit-and-run in Gaithersburg
A man was killed when he and his brother were hit by a car in what police believe is an intentional hit and run in Gaithersburg early Wednesday morning.
The 34-year-old victim was killed on West Diamond Avenue at 1:17 a.m., according to a Montgomery County police press release. The second victim, 54, was nearby and transported to a hospital for treatment of injuries that were not life-threatening.
Earlier in the morning, the surviving brother told police, he and his brother got a ride from the driver of a black Honda Civic. The car dropped them off near the Gaitherstowne Plaza at Chestnut Street. The man said they walked west on West Diamond Avenue when he believes the same black Honda Civic returned and struck them, according to the release.
Montgomery County Police Officer Rebecca Innocenti said investigators are looking into whether the victims and driver of the car knew each other.
Officers found an unoccupied black Honda Civic in the Gaitherstowne Shopping Center parking lot shortly after arriving on the scene, according to the release. The car has damages consistent with hitting a person.
The investigation is ongoing.
