Two men, both 31, succumb to wounds inflicted by thugs

August 11, 1994

A 31-year-old employee who was shot in the back Tuesday night as he tried to flee during an armed robbery at a Pennsylvania Avenue carryout died Tuesday afternoon at the University of Maryland Medical Center, police said.

The victim, Brian Anthony Harrod, was a part-time employee at the Sub Shack near his home in the 1500 block of Pennsylvania Ave.

Police said two robbers burst into the store when the owner opened the front door to take out trash. Mr. Harrod and another employee were behind an enclosed partition when one of the intruders grabbed a customer and held a gun to the customer's head. Mr. Harrod was shot when he tried to flee out the back door, according to police.

Authorities also reported the death Tuesday of another robbery-shooting victim, Leroy Lloyd Duncan, 31, who was wounded July 20 in his second-floor apartment in the 3800 block of S. Hanover St. during a struggle with an armed intruder.
