Armed Suspect Killed By Police After Robbery
ERIE, Pa. (11/4/13)--Police officers in Erie, Pa., fatally shot a man suspected of committing the armed robbery of a credit union on Wednesday afternoon.

Law enforcement officials said that Dionne Jordan, 30, was shot repeatedly after he got out of his vehicle and, allegedly, pointed a gun at four city police officers who had tracked him in the wake of the robbery (Erie Times-News Oct. 31).

The officers found Jordan in a wooded area, allegedly attempting to make a getaway 15 minutes after the nearby Widget Financial FCU branch was robbed.

Jordan was pronounced dead at the scene, and was identified afterward by Erie County Coroner Lyell Cook.

Erie Police Chief Randy Bowers said that Jordan repeatedly threatened to shoot Widget employees as he stole money from multiple sources inside the credit union (McClatchy-Tribune Regional News Oct. 31).

The Federal Bureau of Investigation is investigating the robbery because Widget is federally insured. The Erie Bureau of Police Office Professional Standards is also looking into the incident (Associated Press Nov. 1).

Widget Financial FCU, based in Erie, has $261.2 million in assets.
