The suspects are identified as 25-year-old Nmamoi Ojiaku, of Upper Marlboro; 20-year-old Mathew Ogunsalu, of Lanham; and 24-year-old Aaron Prudhomme, also of Lanham.

Shortly after midnight Friday, police got a call for an armed robbery at a gas station in the 9100 block of Annapolis Road in Lanham.

Two suspects had just robbed the business at gunpoint, and police immediately fanned out in search of the suspects.

Officers spotted a car whose occupants matched the descriptions of the robbery suspects, and immediately took the trio in custody, officials said.

Police believe the men were connected to a robbery two hours earlier at a CVS Pharmacy in the 6900 block of Laurel Bowie Road in Bowie.

During the robbery of the drug store, one of the suspects fired a bullet at the door of a room where an employee was working.
