(Updated) Shocking Vid: Police Shoot Robber Using Human Shield


Suspect reported dead.

[WARNING: Contains graphic images]

From My Fox DC:

Dramatic video shows an alleged bank robber being taken down by police after slipping and falling on ice.

The incident happened at the Capital One Bank in Takoma Park, Md. around 9:00 a.m. on Friday.

Police had the bank surrounded when the alleged robber came out of the front door with what looked like a gun to the head of a female hostage.

As the robber made his way from the bank with the hostage he appeared to slip on ice that covered the parking lot after a Wednesday snow storm.

Police immediately moved in and fired shots at the alleged robber.

Video shows the suspect falling to the ground and police taking him away.

His condition is unknown at this time.

The hostage escaped uninjured.

UPDATE from the AP:

Police in Prince George's County in the Washington suburbs said Friday three other people were injured. The suspect's condition was not immediately known.

Police spokeswoman Lt. Tammy Sparkman said one civilian, who was not the suspect, was taken to a hospital with gunshot wounds and a police officer also was shot, possibly in the leg.


The AP is now reporting the robbery suspect has died as a result of his wounds. The wounds of the other injured victims were not life-threatening.
