According to a preliminary police investigation, the man had been with a group gathered in a condominium parking lot near the intersection with Stedwick Road. He began walking south along Montgomery Village Avenue and realized that someone was shooting at him, a police statement said. After fleeing a short distance, he crossed over the southbound lanes before collapsing in the northbound lanes.
