2 armed men try to rob ice cream shop

Two masked men armed with guns tried to rob an ice cream shop in Glen Burnie Thursday night, but had to give up because the store had closed early.

Police said the men, one carrying a shotgun and the other a black semiautomatic handgun, could not get in the locked door of a Baskin-Robbins in the 7500 block of Ritchie Highway shortly after 9:15 p.m.

As the two turned to run from the shop, they bumped into each other and one of the men dropped the shotgun onto the sidewalk. Witnesses could not say whether the men retrieved the gun before leaving the area in a dark-colored sports car.
