A security guard was shot during an armed robbery at the University of Maryland University College Inn and Conference Center early Tuesday morning.

University of Maryland police said around 2 a.m. the victim was shot on the loading dock of the conference center in College Park. He was transported to an area hospital and is in critical condition.

At least one suspect got away with three lock boxes and another suspect is in custody.

Police said they are still searching for a second gunman, but do not have a good description of him since he was wearing a ski mask and gloves when the robbery occurred.

UMUC workers were initially told to stay away from the conference center, but now have been told it is safe to come to work.
