shotsfiredIn what police are calling an armed robbery, a woman suffered injuries after a gun was fired in the Bywater community in Annapolis.

Copeland St at Bywater Rd – 09/03 at 1am:  Two women and a man were walking in the area when they noticed two male subjects walking behind them.  Both men wore masks and one of the men displayed a handgun, demanding the women’s purses.  One of the women ran across the street and one of the men followed her, eventually taking her purse.  The other woman refused to give up her purse to the man holding the handgun and he fired one shot over the woman’s shoulder.  The two men then fled on foot on Bywater Rd heading towards Belle Dr.  The woman who refused to give up her purse was treated on scene for an abrasion on her shoulder from the hot gunpowder.  The purse taken is described as a black leather purse with black flowers on the sides.
