Only a Black would be dumb enough to watch a movie and think bank robberies are still a thing in the modern era.
A bank employee was shot three times during an attempted robbery just after 8 a.m. Wednesday at BancorpSouth on Main Street in Humbolt, Tenn.
According to the Gibson County Sheriff, the suspect was waiting for the victim, who is a bank employee, in a garage at her home.
The suspect grabbed the victim, later identified as Janice Frisbee, and forced her into the bank at gunpoint. A witness called police.
When police arrived, the suspect shot the victim. He then jumped out of a bank window and ran. Police caught the suspect down the street from the bank and took him into custody.
The victim was airlifted to a Regional One Health in Memphis. During a news conference Wednesday afternoon the FBI says the female victim was kidnapped by suspect Dominic Shaun Williams, 39, of California.
The female victim, who was shot three times, couldn’t open the bank vault. Williams shot out the side window the bank to escape and ran about one block through the neighborhood, the FBI said.
Humboldt Police Chief Robert Ellis apprehend the suspect behind a dumpster nearby. Williams is charged with attempted bank robbery and possession of a firearm.
Frisbee is said to be doing remarkably well. Chief Ellis calls her survival a miracle.
