At approximately 10:51 am, two suspects approached an employee of an armored car company at the listed location. The suspects brandished guns and demanded the US currency the employee was transporting. The victim complied and the suspects took the US currency. The suspects then attempted to take the employee’s handgun. When the suspects tried to remove it from the holster, the handgun discharged.

The suspects then fled the scene in a vehicle. No injuries were reported.

The vehicle was captured by a surveillance camera and can be seen in the photos below:

Anyone who can identify this vehicle or has knowledge of this incident should take no action but call police at (202) 727-9099 or text your tip to the Department’s TEXT TIP LINE at 50411″
