Off-duty Officer Shoots, Kills Robber At CU
VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (9/17/13)--An off-duty police officer shot and killed a man Saturday during an attempted robbery at a Virginia Beach branch of Chartway FCU.
 
The incident occurred about 10:10 a.m. when a man wearing a mask, dark clothing and gloves entered the branch, waved what appeared to be a gun at tellers and announced the robbery (The Virginia-Pilot Sept. 16).
 
As of Monday afternoon, the credit union had not verified that the man was brandishing a gun, said Heidi Worker, Chartway FCU corporate communication director, told News Now.
 
"Law enforcement officials are still conducting their investigation," Worker said. "Hopefully we'll know more soon."
 
Police have not identified the robber. No other injuries were reported.
 
The branch was open Monday.
 
The credit union provided one-on-one counseling for employees, Worker said.
