WHEATON, Md. (WUSA9) -- A man and child are recovering at a hospital after a home invasion and shooting in Aspen Hill early Thursday morning.
Montgomery County Police say officers were called to a home in the 13000 block of Freeland Road around 12:45 a.m. for a report of a shooting. Once officers arrived at the scene they found a 55-year-old man suffering from a gun shot wound to the chest, along with a 14-year-old girl who had been struck in the ankle.
Police say two suspects forced their way into the house through a door and demanded money from the residents. Then, the man and girl were shot. Both victims suffered non-life-threatening and were transported to hospitals, say police.
Police believe the suspects and the residents may have some association with each other.
The suspects are described as white males between the ages of 20 and 25, say police.
Police are asking anyone with information related to this incident to call the Montgomery County Police Department at 301-279-8000.
