Police shoot CU robbery suspect during chase
DES MOINES, Iowa (5/17/11)--A credit union robbery suspect accused of leading police on a car chase, carjacking a van, and ramming a police cruiser and other cars with the stolen van is in stable condition at a Des Moines, Iowa, medical center after he was shot by police Friday afternoon during the chase. Robin Terry Brooks, 27, faces charges of attempted murder, first-degree theft and second-degree robbery (The Des Moines Register (May 14). The incident began after noon when a man walked into Tradesmen Community CU, told a clerk he had a gun and demanded money. A credit union employee triggered a silent alarm. The robber fled in a white sedan. Police gave chase onto a nearby interstate highway and Brooks allegedly ditched the car and fled on foot. About a block away, he dragged a woman from her van and drove away. The woman was not injured, and police recovered a handgun at the scene of the carjacking. Witnesses and police said Brooks allegedly rammed a police cruiser and another car. Four police officers fired on the van and the injured Brooks was captured. Brooks did not fire his gun, said a police spokesperson. Officers involved in the shooting are on administrative leave pending an internal investigation--standard practice when police weapons are fired.
