CU guard fires on armed men thwarts robbery
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (10/24/08)--A credit union security guard thwarted an armed robbery attempt Wednesday morning at One Thirteen CU in Colorado Springs. The guard opened fire on four men--at least two of whom were armed--as they stood at the entrance to the credit union. Some of the suspects wore masks, the guard said (denverpost.com Oct. 22). The guard fired several shots through the glass entrance doors and through a window at the armed suspects as they stood near the credit union’s entrance, according to police. The suspects fled in a car. It is not known if any suspects were hit by gunfire, but the getaway car may have been hit, police said. Four employees and one member were in the credit union at the time of the incident, Bruce Aldridge, president/CEO of One Thirteen, told News Now. “Four guys pulled up and one had a sawed-off shotgun,” Aldridge said. “We have an armed guard here and when he saw them, he locked a magnetic lock we have at the entrance, so they couldn’t get into the credit union. “The guard fired a total of six shots at them and they fled,” he added. “The guard isn’t sure, but he thinks he may have hit of one the suspects because the guy fell back and his mask fell off.” No new information regarding the incident has become known yet, Aldridge said.
