Following up on the bank robbery/standoff downtown

A more complete report on today’s West Seattle bank robbery and ensuing police standoff downtown is available here.

Police opened fire on the suspects after warning them at least 10 times that they’d shoot if they didn’t get out of their vehicle. One suspect was shot in the neck and taken to Harborview, while a construction worker sitting in a nearby van was injured by shattering glass from the gunfire.

Witnesses said it was “like something from Hollywood,” and one even said he thought the scene was a movie being filmed.
