Suspected bank robber dead after standoff


Bank standoff ends in death (5:31)

KISSIMMEE, Florida (AP) -- A 10-hour standoff with two armed bank robbers ended Tuesday when police fatally shot one suspect and arrested the other, authorities said. Four hostages were unharmed.

The suspects had escaped the bank near Walt Disney World with one hostage Tuesday evening, but authorities cornered them in their getaway car, said Osceola County Sheriff Bob Hansell.

The male suspect then "used the hostage again as a shield to get into another vehicle," Hansell said. "He tried to leave again and at that point he was taken down by one of our snipers."

Deputies had been using cell phones to negotiate with the suspects, a man and a woman wearing masks, wigs and coats.

The standoff at the Mercantile Bank, a mile west of Disney, forced police to shut down the area, leaving some tourists confined to their hotels for much of the day.

The suspects held four hostages at one point, but released all but one by the time police blasted through the rear door of the bank using an explosive device.

The suspects then escaped with the hostage and drove away in a bank employee's car, but they traveled less than a mile before street barricades stopped them.

Shots were fired at deputies but nobody was hurt, police said.

The suspects had been holed up in the bank since Tuesday morning.

The first hostage was released when the robbers panicked when deputies arrived so quickly after the robbery, said sheriff's spokeswoman Twis Lizasuain.

The second was freed in exchange for cigarettes and the third after deputies agreed to back their vehicles a few feet farther away from the bank, Lizasuain said.

Lizasuain said none of the released hostages was hurt, and the suspects have said they don't intend to harm anyone.

The same bank was robbed November 16, and investigators are still looking for two suspects, Lizasuain said.

Oh, and along with the bank robbery and host of other charges, the surviving perp will be charged with felony murder for the death of her cohort. Justice, Southern style

Dipshit news folks up in my area (new england) " one killed in tragic hostage situation" (asswipes)
Potentionally tragic for the hostages but seems to have turned out ok to me. My apoliges to anyone who thinks I am makeing light of loss of life,but if one choses to act like an idiot you have to relise your life has a greater chance of ending sooner.

2d Degree Murder for death of accomplice: minimum ~17 years, up to life.

Under the guidelines, the crimes add up, bumping the minimum sentence. She's likely to get life. If I represented her, I'd tell her to jump on 20 years with both feet if it were offered. She'd do at least 85% of whatever she's sentenced, and 100% if sentenced to life.

WHAT!!!?????

There was no mention of the type of firearms used!!!!

Usually they make reference to the dreaded fully automatic, deadly, lethal, more dangerous assault weapons!!

That reporter definitely missed the memo!!

Jack Bauer would approve, except he would have gone in personally and taken out both robbers while on his way to disable a nuclear device set to explode in under 20 minutes.

Why can't they, you know, use rubber bullets or something to stun them? I mean, they said they weren't going to hurt anyone. I'm just not sure deadly force was justified in this case.

Just kidding...but I bet there are some people out there that really think that way.

Sadly, the customary line is "If he's such a good shot, couldn't he just shoot the gun out of his hand, or shoot him in the leg?"

Of course he could. But, he was too busy with the BankRobber of Truth!

Yeah?
He's dead.
Oh, man, I'm sorry. What happened?
His head fell off.
