Investigators say the victim, a 45-year-old man, was shot four times in the back at Germantown Avenue and Wister Street just after midnight. He died at the scene.

And, back in Olney, police made an arrest after a stabbing outside of a bar along Fifth Street. The victim was taken for treatment, but there was no word on his condition.
