AM Briefing from for June 12, 2013


A bank robbery erupts into gunfire and one suspect is still on the loose. Late afternoon Tuesday two suspects … one man and one woman … tried to rob a Wells Fargo bank in the San Diego suburb of University City when a bank guard confronted them. Reportedly the man was shot but able to run away hopping into a waiting car.

According to a KSWB FOX5 report by Kristy Wolski a witness snapped a cell phone picture of the injured robber as he ran to the get-a-way car. The driver and injured suspect were able to flee and evade police; however the injured suspect was dropped off at Sharp Memorial Hospital some time later. The woman was arrested on scene and taken to the hospital, the extent of her injuries is not known at this time. So to sum up … the two robbers are under arrest and in the hospital, one with a gunshot wound to his chest, and the get-a-way driver is still on the loose.
