GREENBELT, Md. — Greenbelt Police are still searching for two gunmen who allegedly forced their way into a Crown Plaza Hotel room on Wednesday.

The victim told police he was inside his hotel room when the men stormed the room armed with handguns.

One reportedly asked the victim where the money was, prompting a fight.

During the altercation a single gunshot was fired, but no one was struck. The second suspect allegedly hit the victim with the gun before both fled the room.

Responding officers were unsure if the suspects were still somewhere in the hotel, so they evacuated part of the building and ordered others to shelter in place.

Neither suspect was found following a search of the hotel. Luckily no one was hurt.

Police say the suspects are around 6’0”, with a thin build, wearing head coverings and dark hooded sweatshirts.

Anyone with information should call 911.
