ROCKVILLE, Md. (CBSDC) — Police in Montgomery County are reviewing surveillance video in hopes of identifying the two disguised men responsible for an early morning attempted robbery of a Rockville CVS in which at least one gunshot was fired.
Two disguised men entered the pharmacy, located in the 7900 block of Tuckerman Lane, around 3:50 a.m. Wednesday and demanded money from employees, authorities say.
One of the men, concealing his face with a fake black beard, produced a handgun during the attempt.
The suspects were not given any cash and ran from the store, police say.
A CVS employee followed the men outside at which point one of the suspects fired a gun at the worker. The employee was not injured.
The suspects were last seen running toward Tuckerman Lane.
Authorities describe both suspects as African-American men in their 20’s.
The bearded suspect was wearing a black baseball hat with a white insignia along with a black hooded sweatshirt with a gray logo, camouflage pants and black tennis shoes.
The other man concealed his face using a ski mask. Authorities say he was wearing blue jeans and a hooded sweatshirt with a white front and dark back and sleeves. The sweatshirt also had white lettering on the back.
Montgomery County Police Capt. Jim Daly say investigators are checking to see whether the attempted robbery is connected to a bank heist that occurred Tuesday near the Congressional Shopping Plaza, four miles away.
Police say no one was injured during Wednesday’s incident.
The drug store has since reopened.
