A man who allegedly pulled a shotgun out of his pants during an armed robbery attempt in a Landover parking lot in September was arrested on Wednesday, according to the Prince George's County Sheriff's Office.

Ronald W. Morgan was arrested in the 4200 block of 58th Avenue in Bladensburg and charged with first- an second-degree assault, armed robbery and related charges for his alleged role in a hold-up along with two others.

Morgan and two other suspects allegedly attempted to rob two victims on Sept. 22 in a parking lot in the 2300 block of Brightseat Road, according to a police account, with Morgan pulling a sawed-off shotgun from his pants and announcing the robbery. One of the victims fought back, trying to wrestle the shotgun away from Morgan, according to warrant information.

The other two suspects responded by opening fire on the victims' vehicle, according to the Sheriff's Office. 

The victims managed to get the sawed off shotgun and were not injured. Morgan and the other two suspects fled on foot, according to the Sheriff's Office.

After Morgan was apprehended, he was transported to the Prince George's County Department of Corrections.
