    A Montgomery County man was shot trying to get into what he thought was his own home.

    The shooting happened around 1:00 A.M. Sunday in the 400 block of Muddy Branch Road in Gaithersburg.

    The 23-year-old victim was trying to get into what he thought was his apartment.

    He really was at his neighbor’s door.

    The homeowner thought someone was trying to break into his home.

    When the homeowner heard some glass breaking, he fired a shot gun, striking the victim.

    The victim was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

    So far, no charges have been filed against the homeowner or the victim.

    The investigation is ongoing.
