Montgomery County police are investigating the murder of two men in two separate incidents during the past two days.

The most recent killing was reported around 10 p.m. Tuesday on North Frederick Road at Oxbridge Drive near the Montgomery College Germantown campus. That is where police found a man who had been shot through his chest. He was taken to Suburban Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

About 24 hours earlier, police responded to the 15800 block of Laughlin Lane off Norbeck Road for another shooting. That is where police discovered a man slumped over the steering wheel of a car. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

In addition to the dead man, police say officers were notified of an adult male who was taken to a Montgomery County hospital by a citizen. This victim, police say, was also suffering from gunshot wounds and was last reported in critical condition.

Police say detectives believe his injuries are a result of the incident at Laughlin Lane and investigators are waiting to speak with him.

Detectives are interviewing subjects who were in the house at the time of the crime to determine the circumstances surrounding this event. No names or motives have been released.

Police have not said if there is any connection between the two homicides.

Detectives are asking anyone who has information about these crimes to call Crime Solvers of Montgomery County toll-free at 1-866-411-TIPS (8477) or leave a Crime Solvers tip here.
