The two men, both in their 20s, were friends and longtime Montgomery County residents who had gone to high school together. One was a wine salesman, and the other worked for the FBI.
They had just left the White Flint Metro station early Sunday and were crossing Rockville Pike, apparently headed toward the apartment house where one of them lived.
About 3:20 a.m. in the northbound lanes of the road they were struck by a car and fatally injured, Montgomery police said.
The two were identified by police as Adam J. Hosinski and Rory J. Weichbrod. Police said both lived in Silver Spring, but relatives said Hosinski was living near White Flint. Both were 26.
Hosinski had worked at the FBI's Washington Field Office since joining the bureau in 2006 as an investigative specialist, a field office spokeswoman said Sunday night.
A "great young man" and the son of a retired FBI agent, Hosinski served "at all times with a tremendous amount of pride and dedication," spokeswoman Katherine Schweit said.
"It's devastating for the family," said his grandmother, Alice Hosinski. "He was a great kid."
She said her grandson had gone to Our Lady of Good Counsel High School, where he had been a wrestler. He attended Frostburg State University and then joined the FBI, she said.
Weichbrod also had gone to Good Counsel and was enrolled at the University of Maryland University College, said his sister, Erin Carrillo.
"Everybody loved Rory," she said. "He was just a loving person."
Weichbrod enjoyed watching sports with his father, she said, and had recently taken up tennis.
Carrillo said that she is expecting the birth of a child next month and that Weichbrod "was so excited" about the prospect of becoming an uncle. "He was a great person," she said. "An amazing person."
