Bank robbery suspect killed while evading Tucson police

TUCSON, Ariz. — A suspect in a Tucson bank robbery has died after being
shot while hiding from police.

Tucson police Sgt. Pete Dugan said employees at a Chase Bank reported that a
man walked in Saturday wielding a handgun and ordered a teller to give him
money.

Dugan said after receiving an undisclosed amount, the suspect fled on a
bicycle.

He said a bank customer followed the suspect and pointed him out to an officer.

Authorities said officers searched for the suspect in a nearby neighborhood and
found him in the shed of a resident’s backyard.

Dugan said multiple shots were fired and the suspect was shot.

The suspect, whose identity has not been released, was pronounced dead at a
hospital.

No officers were injured.
