In a statement released by Police, a group of men entered the First Community Bank and attempted to rob it. The Police arrived just in time to trap the men in the bank. Swat arrived shortly after to help with the situation.
A large crowd has gathered around the outside of the bank. According to witnesses outside the bank, ambulances showed up and took at least two people away shortly after the shooting took place.
'"I heard shots — two of them, real loud — and I came over to the window and could see from there at least three people in the bank holding shotguns. I stayed low down and just kept peeking up to see what was going on and then the police cars all started arriving," said Johnny Springfield, an employee at the Mad Monkey Deli, right across the street from the bank. "Then a big van showed up and all these SWAT officers in black suits came rushing out of the back. It was like something out of a movie. And then, within minutes, there was more gunfire."
