Two people were shot at 5:30 this morning in downtown Silver Spring, right across from the Metro Station.
Police say about 5:30 am. Sunday they were called to Caribbean Style Restaurant on Ramsey Avenue and found a 33-year-old man and 21-year-old woman with gunshot wounds.Now maybe I don't go out as much as I used to, but don't bars in MoCo have to close by 2AM? Why were people still in the club at 5:30? Oh, and I bet dollars to donuts that none of the eventual suspects in this case actually live in Silver Spring.
Officials say a group had left the nightclub and started arguing outside. They say at least one person fired several shots at the man and woman, who were near the front of the nightclub
Maybe this was a party that followed up Saturday's Caribbean festival on Georgia Avenue. I had been wondering what everyone was doing carrying around Jamaican and Dominican flags Saturday afternoon on Ellsworth.
UDPATE: Slightly more in today's Post. Fortunately the suspect wasn't a very good shot... with 17 shots fired, only two people were hit and it looks like they will both live. Speaking of handguns, Atlantic Guns, strategically located just across the DC line, will likely reap the benefits of the D.C. handgun ban ruling.
