Bystander shot during robbery getaway
LENEXA, Kan. (3/31/09)--A man who may have witnessed a robbery at Credit Union of Johnson County's branch in Lenexa, Kan., was shot several times about two blocks from the credit union as the robber fled the scene Saturday morning. The victim was rushed to the hospital. His condition is unknown, said several local news sources. The credit union was robbed just after 9 a.m. Saturday, when a lone man entered the branch, vaulted the counter and displayed a silver pistol, said a spokeswoman with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (Kansas City Star March 28). He left the credit union driving a light-colored sport utility vehicle with Colorado license plates. About two blocks from the credit union, the robber shot the victim several times. It was unclear whether the victim was a member of the credit union or if he had followed the robbery suspect. Conflicting reports had the victim's age in the sixties or as 71 (WDAF via fox4kc.com and WIBW TV March 28).
