Deputy hurt robbery suspect shot in CU heist
FORT WORTH, Texas (1/4/12)--An off-duty sheriff's deputy working security at Fort Worth (Texas) Community CU and a robbery suspect were both injured in a confrontation in the credit union's parking lot after the credit union was robbed Saturday morning.

The deputy, Fredrick Bauer, 58, an eight-year veteran of the Tarrant County Sheriff's Department, received serious but non-life threatening injuries when his throat was cut by the suspect after he confronted the suspect in the parking lot (Star-Telegram Dec. 31 and 10kwtz.com Jan.1).

Bauer reached his handgun and shot the suspect in the head, said  Fort Worth police. He was treated at a local hospital and released in good condition.  The suspect was in critical condition at another local hospital.

The robbery occurred at 9:30 a.m. when a man entered the credit union and presented a note demanding money to a teller. The man then fled with the money.  A second suspected robber fled the scene in a car. Bauer shot at the car, possibly breaking windows, said police.
