“We have investigators working to track the suspect down,” said Phoenix Police Sgt. Steve Martos. “If anyone knows who the man might be, they are urged to contact Phoenix Police or Silent Witness.”

According to police reports, two guards were transferring cash at the Wells Fargo at 16th Street and Glendale Road when they were approached by two black males demanding money. They were armed with at least one assault rifle. One of the armored truck employees shot at one suspect, who later died from his injuries at a local hospital.
