Fox5[/URL]]Police: Suspect Killed in Atlanta-Area Bank Robbery
Two suspects remain at large.

By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

RIVERDALE, Ga. (AP) -- A suspected bank robber was killed by a security guard in a shooting Wednesday south of Atlanta, and police said two suspects remain at large.

Fulton County Police Captain Brian Weaver said the guard shot the armed suspect just after the man had robbed the bank and was trying to exit with some money around 11:15 a.m.

The robber collapsed, bleeding, just outside the front door of the Bank of America branch bank office which sits in the parking lot of a Riverdale shopping center.

Weaver said that just before the shooting, a customer alerted bank officials about suspicious activity in the parking lot. The other two suspects are believed to have been waiting outside the bank in a smoke gray Jeep Cherokee. They fled the scene.

Police said no one else inside the bank was injured. They have not released the name of the dead man or the security guard. Police are interviewing the guard.

Weaver said they believe the guard acted appropriately.

The bank is in southern Fulton County near the Clayton county line.

I remember when I was very young every bank we went into had a uniformed, armed, police officer or gaurd.

Maybe it was just the "hood" I grew up in.....Just kidding....

Had live video of a dead perp on the noon news today. He was shot by a guard inside the bank and croaked while running out the door.

Yea, I saw this story about noon today on the news. Crazy stuff. They mentioned a second suspect and that they were looking for a grayish Jeep Cherokee. Not sure if that ended up being true. If it was, I wonder if he was ever caught.

I caught two seconds of a cop drama show last night and there was a crime scene somewhere and the LEOs were doing their investigation. They talked to the "armed" guard and he handed over his "weapon" to them to look at. It wasn't real. He said they wouldn't let him carry a real gun because they were afraid of getting sued if he actually shot someone. I thought this was hilarious but sadly true.

I dont think I could take a job with a fake gun. Being in a uniform like that guy is a bullseye. Wearing what looks like a gun is an invitation for bad guys.

Sad how companies think...

Kind of like the sniper shirts that say "Don't run. You'll just die tired."

Yeah, I stopped doing that when I quit playing cops and robbers with my cap guns.
