Man Enters Wrong Home, Gets Shot

A local man was shocked with gunfire early Saturday while climbing through a window that he thought was his. Instead, it was the apartment window of his neighbor, who was armed with a shotgun filled with lead pellets.

The resident of Governor Square apartments in Gaithersburg called Montgomery County Police to tell them that he had shot an intruder. The confused “intruder” was taken to a local hospital where he is expected to recover.

No one has been arrested, and an investigation is ongoing.
