SILVER SPRING, Md. — Police are investigating after two men were shot while sitting in a parked car at a Silver Spring 7-Eleven Thursday evening.

According to the Montgomery County Department of Police, officers were called to the 9200 block of New Hampshire Avenue just after 5:15 p.m.

When officers arrived, they found two men suffering from gunshot wounds. One of the men was treated on scene and is expected to be okay. The second man was taken to an area hospital. 

Investigators say the men were sitting in a car in the 7-Eleven parking lot at the back of the store when a car drove up and the people inside began shooting.
