COURTESY PHOTO  Montgomery County Police are working with the State’s Attorney’s Office to determine if criminal charges are warranted in the death of a 17-year-old Quince Orchard High School student who collapsed after a planned physical fight at a Gaithersburg basketball court last month.

Tyler Steven Terry of Gaithersburg died Sunday, Feb. 11 after a nearly two-week hospitalization stemming from a “cardiac event” he experienced after participating in a fight the morning of Monday, Jan. 29.

Police say two groups of individuals – including Terry – met at a basketball court near Hillstone Road and Timber Rock Road in Gaithersburg with the intention of fighting.

Witnesses called 911 when Terry collapsed several minutes after his participation in the first fight with a male from the opposing group that lasted approximately two to three minutes, according to a Feb. 12 Montgomery County Police press release.

“While the third fight was occurring, Terry collapsed on the ground and became unconscious,” the MCP report stated.
