DISTRICT HEIGHTS, Md. (WUSA9) -- Three suspects are under arrest for their role in an armed commercial robbery and police-involved shooting.
Prince George's County police identified the suspects as25-year-old Bobby Frederick Dews, of the 700 block of 18th Street in Northeast Washington;22-year-old Jordann Denise Walker of the 5100 block of 57th Avenue in Bladensburg, Md.; and35-year-old Charles Sander Davis, Jr. of the unit block of Maryland Park Drive in Capitol Heights, Md.
Dews, Davis and Walker all face multiple charges in connection with the armed robbery, police say.
On Dec. 7, just before 9 p.m., officers responded to the 6000 block of Marlboro Pike for the report of a commercial robbery, police say.The investigation reveals three suspects had entered a business, assaulted an employee and stole cash.
As officers were on their way to the scene, they saw the possible suspect car driving away, according to police. The officers followed the car, which they now know was stolen, onto Parkland Court where it pulled into a parking lot. The three suspects jumped out of the car and each ran in a different direction.
Dews quickly jumped into a nearby car, police say. Officers initially believed Dews was attempting to steal the car and an exchange of gunfire occurred as officers confronted Dews. A District Heights police officer and Dews were struck.
The car was serving as a getaway vehicle and Walker was identified as the driver. Davis was found nearby a short time later.
Police say a fourth remains at large.
