BALTIMORE (WMAR) - Police are searching for two people after a robbery and shooting in downtown Baltimore overnight.
According to police, the two men with guns were robbing the 7-Eleven in the 300 block North Charles Street just after 1:00 Tuesday morning. When officers got to the store, the suspects started to shoot at them.
The officers then reportedly returned fire, but the men were able to run away in opposite directions. No officers were injured during the shooting, and officials say they are unsure if the suspects were hit.
ABC2 crews on the scene reported they saw as many as 40 shell casings on the surrounding streets.
.@TJSmithMedia : “Absolute, sheer amazement” that no officer was shot during this incident. Weapon used by suspects had an extended magazine. This particular 711 was robbed 3 times in 2017 and recently on Friday night. @ABC2NEWSpic.twitter.com/aQBNurJBsT
