Robbery Suspect Shot by Police

Posted: Updated:

A man who is suspected of robbing an east Erie credit union was shot and killed Wednesday afternoon in a confrontation with police near the East 38th Street Tops Market.

Police say the man stashed a getaway vehicle behind the store, which was where the shooting took place.

Police believe that the suspect, whose name has not yet been released, robbed the Widget Financial Branch nearby. If so, it would be the third time that a Widget branch has been robbed in recent weeks.

FBI and Erie police are currently investigating which is not unusual in bank robbery cases.
