Two suspects reportedly attempted to rob an armored car outside of a CVS Pharmacy on the 6500 block of Georgia Avenue.

Police say shots were fired during an attempted robbery of an armored car at 11 a.m. Wednesday morning on the 6500 block of Georgia Avenue NW near Underwood. So far, police have provided few details about what happened. A police commander at the scene says it is unclear how many suspects were involved in the robbery, whether there were any injuries, and if anyone is in custody.

The police are reporting that a guard fired on at least three suspects who tried to rob the vehicle. Bullet holes were visible in the glass doors of the CVS Pharmacy where the attempted robbery took place.

One of the suspects suffered a gun shot wound to the head in the exchange, and was driven to Washington Hospital Center by his accomplice to seek treatment, according to sources cited by NBC Washington.

Police have said that there was a gunshot victim in critical condition at an area hospital, but have not confirmed that he was connected with the robbery.
