Baltimore, MD – June 18, 2019 - Last night just before 11pm, Baltimore County Police were dispatched to 2801 Smith Ave, Shoppers, for a call of an armed robbery.

The suspect pointed a handgun at Shoppers’ unarmed security guard inside the store and announced a robbery. The security guard yelled out to everyone in the store to head toward the rear of the store which most did, many escaping out on to Woodcourt Road just behind the shopping center. The security guard exited as well.

The suspect forced a female employee to open a register. Once she opened the register, she fled to the back of the store. The suspect then removed an undisclosed amount of money from the register and fled the scene.
