On May 30 at 10:47 a.m., two men entered Bobs Trading Company located at 2160 Crain Highway in Waldorf, brandishing handguns. The victim, a 24-year-old Waldorf man, an employee of the business, attempted to take a handgun from one of the suspects. The victim retrieved a gun from behind the counter and fired one shot that did not strike either suspect. One suspect gained control of the victims gun and struck him in the head with it. During the struggle, the other suspect broke the glass display case and stole an undetermined amount of jewelry. Both suspects fled the scene and were last seen on foot heading south behind the 7-Eleven on Old Washington Road in Waldorf, which is located next to Bobs Trading Company. The victim was transported to Southern Maryland Hospital for non-life threatening injuries.
