Police say a 17-year-old is recovering after being shot during an overnight robbery attempt in Oxon Hill.

It happened just before 11:30 p.m. Wednesday near the corner of Lindsay Road and Shelby Drive, just down the street from Oxon Hill High School. Police say the teen was taken to the hospital in serious condition.

Police say as many as four suspects could be involved in this shooting. Their descriptions are extremely vague.

Police are hoping that someone in the neighborhood may have seen the crime and will come forward with information.

Moments before the shots, Shannon Mason was in bed watching cartoons with her daughter. A child's innocent moment shattered as the family took cover inside their own home.

"Next thing I know police are knocking, banging at the door," Mason says. "I'm just getting tired of this. Kids can't come out and play, it's getting bad."
