    A man was carjacked and robbed at gunpoint outside a fitness center in Hyattsville, Maryland, on Nov. 6.

    The victim said he came out of the Planet Fitness gym on Landover Road around 2:30 a.m. when someone stole his car, cellphone, and wallet. The man was unharmed, and the car, but not the wallet or cellphone, was found three days later.

    The victim said the parking lot in the shopping center where the gym is located is not well lit and had other crime problems. Police said security camera video from the area appeared to show the gunman.
