Prince George's County police believe the two suspects injured in a police-involved shooting Tuesday morning were planning to rob a bank.
The shooting happened at about 10:45 a.m. in the parking lot of a Giant grocery store in Upper Marlboro. Just before the shooting, members of a Prince George's County police task force spotted a black Ford Mustang that was reported stolen in Baltimore Monday night.
When the officers approached the vehicle, one of them saw a suspect pull out a weapon. A witness heard an officer tell the suspect not to touch the weapon before shots were fired.
Both suspects were injured. They were taken to a hospital, where 44-year-old Clyde Peterson was treated. Police said Wednesday that they've charged Peterson, of Upper Marlboro, with felony theft and handgun-related charges.
A second suspect remains in the hospital. Chages are pending.
