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.

One person is in custody Thursday morning after a late-night shooting in Olney that left a teen in critical condition. It happened on North Second and West Champlost streets.
