GWYNN OAK, Md. (AP) — Police in Maryland shot three men in a vehicle that officers said began to accelerate toward them as they approached it to investigate a robbery that had just happened.

Baltimore County police say the men were seriously injured late Monday and are being treated at hospitals.

In a written statement Tuesday morning, police said an officer on patrol thought he saw someone suspicious near a convenience store in the western suburbs of Baltimore. Another officer responded to check if people in the store were OK, and was told the store had just been robbed. The officers found a vehicle parked about a block away, and went toward it on foot. Police say the vehicle accelerated toward them, and the officers, "in fear for their lives," fired at it.
