SHORELINE, Wash. (9/14/09)--One man was arrested and another shot and killed in the aftermath of a credit union robbery Thursday near Seattle. James Bartlow, 47, was arrested in connection with the robbery of an Alaska USA CU branch in Shoreline, Wash., according to FBI agent Mary Prewett. The dead man was not immediately identified (Associated Press Sept. 11).

A stun gun was deployed to take the second man into custody. All three officers were placed on administrative leave, a sheriff’s spokesman said.
