Germantown shootout leaves homes, cars damaged

Police in Montgomery County, Maryland, released new video Wednesday of a Gaithersburg shooting that left bullet holes in a handful of homes and cars earlier this month.

It happened around 1:45 a.m. June 5 on Mill Pond Terrace near Mill Pond Court, according to a news release from Montgomery County police.

The newly released video — taken by a home surveillance camera — shows a group of people firing multiple gunshots toward someone or something outside the video frame before scattering.

Hours after the shooting, detectives found multiple shell casings and bullet damage to the surrounding homes and cars.
