    The two men accused in the armed robbery of a Maryland liquor store Wednesday have been identified, Prince George's County police said Friday.

    Police say Donell Joseph Calloway, 25, of southeast D.C., and Gregory Tony Evans, 26, of northeast D.C., led officers on a 5-mile chase before crashing their minivan in northwest D.C.

    At least one officer pursued the men on foot as they ran toward a nearby wooded area and at least one gunshot was fired, injuring Calloway.

    Calloway is currently hospitalized and remains in stable condition. Evans is in the custody of the Metropolitan Police Department and is awaiting extradition to Prince George's County. Both Calloway and Evans face several charges related to armed robbery. 

    Detectives have also linked Calloway and Evans to a second robbery which occurred earlier Wednesday on the 4100 block of Southern Avenue in Capital Heights.

    The Special Investigation Response Team is leading the investigation into the Wednesday night shooting, which involved a patrol officer from the Prince George's County Police Department. He is on routine administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.
