On March 6 at 11:10 a.m., a student from St. Charles High School was leaving school for the day when he was approached in the parking lot by several suspects and struck in the head with what appeared to be a handgun. The victim dropped his keys, and the suspects picked them up and fled from the school in the victim’s car. The victim was treated for an injury by EMS. The assault does not appear to be random, and detectives are pursuing leads. Additional details will be released when available. Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Wimberly at 301-609-6491. The investigation is ongoing.
