Armed bank robbery stopped (Monday night, September 21, 2015):
. . . The 43-year-old assailant entered the bank with a gun and had procured “a large amount” of cash from the bank when, on the way out, he appears to have threatened a 63-year-old customer with his gun, according to Fouts.
That customer turned out to be carrying a concealed firearm for which he had a permit, the mayor said. The customer managed to pull out his own weapon and shoot the suspect three times: once in each arm and once in a leg.
The robber then staggered outside the building, where he fell, dropping the money alongside him, said witness Shante Jackson, who was watching after he heard a bang from across the street.
“I was in a state of shock,” she said. . . .
