During yesterday's carjacking turned shooting at Largo Town Center Metro station, a father and his daughter were inside the stairway of the garage when they were robbed by four men in ski masks and dark clothes.
The woman was shot in the stomach, and her father was struck in the head. They are both expected to recover.
Authorities believe it is connected to a carjacking last Friday at New Carrollton, in which a man that was exiting his car in that parking lot when he was robbed at gunpoint by men in ski masks.
After that robbery, the suspects were believed to be in possession of a gray Audi wagon with Maryland tags.
Metro rider Roz Simmons, who was heading to the platform at Largo this morning, says she's not surprised these carjackings have happened.
"This whole metro system is a disaster waiting to happen, and it's very frustrating," Simmons says, adding she has been concerned about security here for quite some time.
There were extra police officers on duty at Largo Town Center Metro this morning.
