UPDATE: Germantown Shooting Left One Dead, Three Injured

Montgomery County police have released new information about the shooting in Germantown Tuesday night.

The police identified the man who died from gunshot wounds as Tray Dawkins, 18, of Germantown. Police say that Dawkins, two other men, and a boy were standing in a parking lot near the 18700 block of Curry Powder Lane when a person — or persons — started shooting at them.

When police arrived at the scene at 9:15 p.m. they say they found one adult man and a juvenile man “suffering from gunshot wounds”; police say they were transported to a hospital for “non-life threatening injuries.”

Police say the other man and Dawkins left the scene before officers arrived because they were trying to get to a hospital. The man who left the scene with Dawson has “non-life threatening injuries of a non-specified nature,” police say.

Capt. Thomas Jordan told MCM that investigators cannot corroborate reports about a suspect leaving the scene in a silver van, and that’s not a focus of the investigation at this time.

Jordan also said it’s unclear if it was one person doing the shooting or a group of shooters.

Police say that anyone with knowledge about “the suspect or suspects” involved in the shooting should call the Major Crimes Division at 240-773-5070. Anyone who wants to remain anonymous and receive a reward of up to $10,000 can call the Crime Solvers of Montgomery County at 1-866-411-8477.
