Member who was shot tried to follow robber
KANSAS CITY, Kan. (4/2/09)--A man who was shot several times after Credit Union of Johnson County, Lenexa, Kan., was robbed may have been shot while following the man who held up the credit union. Federal charges were filed Tuesday in Kansas City against Nicholas E. Kamphaus, 26, for one count of armed bank robbery. Kamphaus was arrested Sunday. Kamphaus allegedly entered the credit union Saturday and demanded money from one of the tellers, according to a criminal complaint. He took money from two of the teller stations and fled in a sport utility vehicle, the Department of Justice said in a release Tuesday. After the robbery, a member tried to enter the credit union’s building. An employee told him that a robbery had taken place and the lobby was closed. The man said he’d seen the robber and was going to follow him, according to the press release. Lenexas police then responded to a report of shots fired near the credit union. They found a man in a grey minivan with gunshot wounds. The victim told police he’d been shot by the robber. The next day, police received information from a witness that the robber’s vehicle was parked at a house near the credit union. Police went to the residence and uncovered shell casings from the vehicle that matched the casings found near the minivan. Kamphaus faces a maximum penalty of 25 years in federal prison and a fine up to $250,000.
