Man, 24, shot dead in Montgomery

A man who was found fatally shot in the White Oak area Tuesday morning has been identified as Franklin Ikechukwu Amobi, Montgomery County police said.

Amobi, 24, of the 11200 block of Columbia Pike in Silver Spring, was apparently targeted in the attack, police said.

“The early indication is this is not a random shooting,” said Capt. Paul Starks.

Officers responded to a call of reported gunshots at 6:40 a.m. in the 11400 block of Stewart Lane and found Amobi lying in the street.

He was near a bus stop but police said there was no immediate indication he was waiting for a bus.
