Police: Arrest made in Sheetz robbery has connection to Sunday shooting

News

A 25-year-old Hagerstown man is behind bars after allegedly robbing a store clerk at gunpoint on Sunday.

Investigators said Woodrow Carmack went into the Sheetz located in the 300-block of E. Washington Street, and pulled out a gun.

“He made some purchases, and then he went back up to the counter, and demeaned money from the clerk,” officer Heather Aleshire told WHAG in a phone interview on Monday.

“At that time, he displayed a handgun in his waistband, and then took off on foot outside of the Sheetz store.”

Police said Carmack was able to get the money from the clerk before fleeing the scene.

However, according to Aleshire, in about an hour, a K-9 unit and several police officers found the suspect in the area of Jefferson and N. Mulberry Street, only a few blocks away from the Sheetz.

When police found Carmack, they said he was suffering from a gunshot wound to his abdomen.

Aleshire declined to comment on how Carmack received his gunshot wound, stating that the case is still under investigation.

Carmack was arrested and transported to Meritus Medical Center for his injuries.

Carmack was charged with armed robbery, assault with a deadly weapon, assault with a deadly weapon in commission of a felony, 1st and 2nd degree assault, and theft.

According to a press release, Carmack is being investigated for several other robberies throughout the city.

Police declined to release Carmack’s photo because of pending investigations.

“I don’t know the relation between all the other various robberies. We just know that he has become a possible suspect in some of those other things,” Aleshire said.

The case is still under investigation. Anyone with information is asked to call the Hagerstown Police Department’s Crime Tip Line at 301-739-8577 x 234 or by emailing crimetip@hagerstownpd.org.
