Suspect at large in armed robbery on Gist Ave. in Silver Spring

A Maryland State Police helicopter assisted Montgomery County Police after an armed robbery in the 600 block of Gist Avenue early Thursday evening in Silver Spring. Gist Avenue is located near Takoma Park Middle School.

Police say 2 masked robbers displayed at least one handgun during the robbery. The suspects were described as 2 black males, late teens to early twenties, wearing all black, including the masks. No specifics were given regarding the type of mask worn.

Following a search, one suspect was in police custody an hour later. The other suspect remains at large. Police did not say the handgun was recovered from the captured suspect. Until that detail is released, you should probably assume the other suspect remains armed.

An investigation is ongoing in this case. If you have any information you can share with detectives, call the non-emergency number at 301-279-8000, or 911 if the situation is an emergency requiring an urgent police response.
