    A courier was seriously injured in an armored truck robbery in Oxon Hill, Md., Tuesday afternoon, News4’s Darcy Spencer reported.

    A witness told News4 it appeared an armored car courier was shot in the face in front of a Save a Lot store in the 6300 block of Livingston Road.

    The driver was still inside the truck when three or four masked men -- at least one with a gun -- got out of a silver, four-door car about 1 p.m. and confronted the courier.

    “A confrontation ensued,” Prince George’s County police Lt. William Alexander said. “One of the employees was shot. The suspects then did manage to obtain some property from the armored car, and they quickly made their escape in the same four-door, silver car.”

    It’s unclear what the robbers got away with it.

    No arrests have been made. Prince George’s County police are looking for that silver car. A security camera took video of the car driving away.

    The courier was taken to a local hospital with serious wounds but is in stable condition and is expected to survive.
