UPDATE: Man Dead After Second South Frederick Ave Shooting in Three Days

UPDATED to reflect the man has died.

Around 6:11 PM Sunday, Montgomery County and Gaithersburg City Police Officers responded to the area of 14 South Frederick Avenue for a reported shooting.

Responders found a adult male in his 20s suffering from a gunshot wound. He was taken to a local hospital in critical condition, and died later Sunday at the hospital.

This is the second fatal shooting on that stretch of South Frederick Avenue since Friday. On Friday, Gaithersburg Street Crimes Unit Police Officers shot and killed a man who pulled a gun after fleeing from the Police Officers.
