Homicide suspects caught on surveillance camera

Police investigating a double shooting and homicide in Olney on Oct. 1 released surveillance footage of the suspects just before the incident, and are asking for help from the public to make an arrest.

Two men approached the victims around 3:50 a.m. on 5th Street near Ruscomb, and were involved in a brief argument with them on the street, police said.

One of the men opened fire, fatally wounding Bernabe Montes, 43, who lived on the same block where he was slain.

A second man was shot in his abdomen, and was rushed to the Albert Einstein Medical Center in critical condition.

The suspects fled the scene in a small or mid-sized white car, which may have been a 1996 Honda Accord, police said.

The suspects are described as two black men, both in their mid 20s who are both between 5 feet 9 and 5 feet 11 inches tall, police said. They were both armed and were wearing dark clothing.

Tipsters are asked to call 215-686-TIPS (8477)
