Two Wheaton men are fatally shot


WHEATON -- Montgomery County police are investigating the fatal shootings over the weekend of two Wheaton men -- the first a homicide late Saturday, the other apparently a suicide that authorities said may be related.

Police found the body of homicide victim Wilber Hernandez, 30, of the 3400 block of Hewitt Ave. near the back entrance of Cancun Restaurant on Georgia Avenue in Wheaton shortly after 11 p.m. Saturday.

While searching for a car witnesses said was used in the shooting, officers found a similar car on Elkin Street, with Luis Toledo, 31, of the 12000 block of Shorefield Court inside suffering from what was apparently a self-inflicted gunshot wound, authorities said.

Toledo died yesterday morning at a hospital, police said.
