3rd carjacking in downtown Silver Spring in 2 weeks

The third carjacking in downtown Silver Spring in the last two weeks happened early yesterday morning, July 8 at 2:53 AM. Police responded to an armed carjacking at a gas station in the 7900 block of Georgia Avenue. A 7-Eleven is only gas station on that block by my recollection. The previous carjackings occurred on June 28 (in the afternoon, no less) and July 1.

In two of the three carjackings, including the latest one, the robber brandished a gun. This is a troubling crime trend, to say the least.
