SOUTH BEND, Ind. (8/23/11)--A man was in stable condition in a South Bend, Ind., hospital after being shot Saturday morning by a police officer who was pursuing him after a credit union was robbed. The incident began when a man in dark clothing and a mask entered Notre Dame (Ind.) FCU's South Bend branch shortly before 9:30 a.m. Saturday and demanded money. Witnesses who had seen the man acting suspiciously before he went into the credit union called police (The Associated Press Aug. 20). The robbery suspect fled the credit union on good and police officers gave chase. They caught up with him on a bridge over the Indiana Toll Road south of the credit union. Police told media that when they confronted the suspect, he pulled a handgun from behind his back and pointed it at an officer, who fired shots at the suspect (WNDU.com Aug. 20). He received treatment at the scene, then was transported to the hospital where he underwent surgery. Charges have not been filed as of Monday (South Bend Tribune Aug. 22).
