SUITLAND, Md. – Prince George’s County police say an off-duty D.C. police officer shot at a man who robbed him at gunpoint in the Suitland area.

The incident occurred about 10 p.m. Saturday in the 3800 block of Old Silver Hill Road. Police say the robber was apparently not hit by the gunfire and fled on foot with an unknown amount of cash.

County police spokeswoman Sgt. Michelle Reedy says the D.C. officer was not hurt, but she could not provide further details.

    Glad our brother was not hurt. But perhaps a little range time is called for here. Be prepared on and off duty.

    good job, glad the officer was not hurt. I am supprised there are any criminals at all in this area. There are so many police agencies here that it seems like almost everyone you run across is an officer. I do know a lot of criminals get dead here attempting to rob police, to bad this one got away but I bet he thinks twice next time!!
