Police investigate shooting, robbery of armored truck guard
Police are searching for the men who shot an armored truck guard and stole something from the parking lot of an Oxon Hill Save-A-Lot on Tuesday afternoon.
The guard, who police spokesman Lt. William Alexander said was shot on the upper half of his body, is in serious condition at a hospital.
Lt. Alexander said that two guards working for Loomis Armored Car were in the store's parking lot on the 6300 block of Livingston Road to drop off money just after 1 p.m. While one of the guards was unloading something from the vehicle, a silver four-door vehicle pulled up nearby. Three or four black males, possibly wearing masks, got out of the car and engaged in a confrontation with the guard, Lt. Alexander said. They managed to take something from the guard — though police could not confirm Tuesday afternoon if it was money or something else. One of the men shot the guard, and they all left the scene in the vehicle.
Police have not identified any suspects and did not have a further description of their vehicle. Lt. Alexander said that the incident was caught on video surveillance cameras.
