Suspected bank robber killed in Dallas; guard hurtby The Associated Press on Dec. 17, 2008, under Nation/World
DALLAS — A robbery suspect was killed inside a bank after he wounded an armed security guard, police said.
The man entered a branch of Chase Bank in south Dallas on Tuesday afternoon. He shot at the security guard, who was grazed in the upper body, police said. The guard told officers he had exchanged gunfire with the gunman but wasn’t sure if he had hit the man.
Several customers and employees had fled the bank by the time officers arrived, and more fled as police tactical units prepared to enter the building.
Officers found the body of the suspect after entering the building. His identity has not been confirmed.
Dallas police Chief David Kunkle said authorities are still interviewing witnesses.
The security guard was listed in good condition.
