Olney man fatally shot in head

A gun­shot wound of the head claimed the life of an Ol­ney man in­side a Frank­ford house early Sat­urday, but po­lice have little in­form­a­tion about who pulled the trig­ger and why.

Of­ficers re­spond­ing to a 911 re­port of a “hos­pit­al case” went to a res­id­ence on the 1600 block of Foulk­rod St. at about 5 a.m. and found the fatally wounded Shareef Young, 31, in a second-floor hall­way. Para­med­ics pro­nounced him dead with­in minutes. Young lived on the 5500 block of West­ford Road.

Po­lice have re­leased no in­form­a­tion about pos­sible sus­pects or a motive in the slay­ing. ••
