A bank robbery suspect is in a Kansas City hospital. He was shot while trying to hold up a bank in Trimble, MO.
It all started shortly after 1:30 p.m. Friday at the First Security Bank located on U.S. Highway 169 in Trimble.
First Security Bank is not a traditional bank where just anybody can walk in, so police said the suspect was most likely buzzed in before he pulled a gun and demanded cash. That's where things took an unusual turn.
Trimble Police Chief Larry Fish said a civilian inside the bank pulled out a gun and shot the would-be robber.
According to police, the robbery suspect then ran out to a nearby parking lot, hopped in a car and took off, leading Trimble police, highway patrol and several other agencies on a chase that ended on I-435 near Northeast 76th Street when authorities laid down four sets of spike strips. Missouri State Highway Patrol took the suspect into custody where he was then taken to an area hospital.
