SHORELINE, Wash. (9/14/09)--One man was arrested and another shot and killed in the aftermath of a credit union robbery Thursday near Seattle. James Bartlow, 47, was arrested in connection with the robbery of an Alaska USA CU branch in Shoreline, Wash., according to FBI agent Mary Prewett. The dead man was not immediately identified (Associated Press Sept. 11). The FBI believes that Bartlow and the second man committed four bank robberies and one attempted robbery that the bureau attributed to a robber dubbed the “Fashion Faux Pas Bandit.” After the robbery, witness followed the two men to a parking lot about 10 blocks from the credit union and called in the location to police, the FBI said. When King County sheriff’s officers arrived, they confronted a man with a gun, and three officers fired at him. The man died on the way to a local hospital, the FBI said. A stun gun was deployed to take the second man into custody. All three officers were placed on administrative leave, a sheriff’s spokesman said.
