Posted: Updated:
SILVER SPRING, Md. -

A manhunt is underway after a homicide in the White Oak section of Silver Spring.

A man was found dead in an apartment in the 11400 block of July Drive. The victim is 21 years old. Police say he had severe trauma to his upper body.

Roadblocks were set up nearby on Lockwood Drive after witnesses reported seeing two black males running from the crime scene.

"Officers were attempting to stop anyone exiting the area to see if they could get more information," says Captain Robert Bolesta of the Montgomery County Police Department. "We also wanted to see if anyone had a weapon that could have been used to cause that type of trauma to the body."

Police don't know for certain if the man was shot, but that is the original call they responded to. The medical examiner will have to determine the exact cause of death.

Police say they won't have a motive until the two suspects are caught.
