Montgomery County detectives on Tuesday morning were trying to piece together a homicide case that involved a man found dead in a driveway, another man who showed up at a nearby hospital with at least one gunshot wound, and clues that could be scattered along the snow-covered ground in the county’s Norbeck area.

Around 10:30 p.m. Monday, officers were called for a report of shots fired on Laughlin Lane, which is about one mile east of Georgia Avenue and near the Intercounty Connector, said Capt. Paul Starks, a police spokesman.

The officers found a man dead in the driveway. Around the same time, another man showed up at a nearby hospital with at least one serious gunshot injury. Detectives have connected both victims to the same incident. But details were unclear – both in terms of what detectives had been able to put together, and what findings officials were willing to release.

The detectives are trying to determine the men’s relationship, if any, Starks said. The hospitalized man remained in critical condition and detectives were waiting to speak to him, police said.

Police said investigators also are interviewing other people who were at the home when the incident occurred.

On Tuesday morning, teams of detectives and crime scene investigators combed through the snow looking for evidence. At one point, they found clothing on nearby Twin Valley Court that could be related to the case. Police also had two cars towed away from the scene.
