Montgomery County police arrested six suspects Wednesday connected to a November 2022 homicide and shooting in Northwest Branch Stream Valley Park that killed 20-year-old Edvin Moises Agustin Leon and injured another victim.
Through the investigation, detectives learned that the incident was gang related, but did not share details about the name of the gang, according to a news release.

According to the news release, the shooting and homicide occurred on Nov. 9, 2022. Police responded to the 9000 block of Piney Branch Road and upon arrival, located an adult male suffering from gunshot wounds in a wooded area behind an apartment complex. He was transported to an area hospital in serious but stable condition.
The second victim, Leon, was discovered while K-9 officers canvassed the crime scene. When police found him, he was already deceased with apparent gunshot wounds, the news release said.
