Two men killed during robbery at CU in Georgia
COLUMBUS, Ga. (9/7/11)--Two robbery suspects were shot to death by a police officer Tuesday morning as they fled after allegedly robbing the M.E.A. FCU in Columbus, Ga. The incident occurred at 11:30 a.m. at the $62 million asset credit union on Macon Road when a police officer pulled into the rear parking lot of the credit union and saw a masked man running out of the credit union (WRBL.com (Sept. 6). The robbery suspects made it to a getaway vehicle, but the officer stopped it from leaving. The officer left the police car and demanded they get out of the car and turn the vehicle off. The driver put the car in reverse and tried to run over the officer, who fired several gunshots. One of the men was dead at the scene. The other died later at a local hospital. As a precaution, police locked down the school district's offices and several schools. No one else was injured, said police.
