Robbery suspect killed by deputies had toy gun
SHORELINE, Wash. (9/15/09)--A man who was shot and killed by three King County sheriff’s deputies in the aftermath of a credit union robbery Thursday near Seattle, had pulled a toy gun on the officers. The gun was a replica of a G-26 Glock pistol, which some deputies and officers carry on the job (Seattle Post-Intelligencer Sept. 14). The King County Medical Examiner’s Office identified the dead man as Jason W. Williams, 32, the newspaper said. James Bartlow, 47, was arrested in connection with the robbery of an Alaska USA FCU branch in Shoreline, Wash., according to FBI agent Mary Prewett (News Now Sept. 14) . The FBI believes that Bartlow and Williams committed four bank robberies and one attempted robbery that the bureau attributed to a robber dubbed the “Fashion Faux Pas Bandit.” After Thursday’s robbery, witnesses followed the two men to a parking lot about 10 blocks from the credit union and called in the location to police, the FBI said. When King County sheriff’s officers arrived, they confronted Williams, and three officers fired at him. Williams died on the way to a local hospital, the FBI said. A stun gun was deployed on Bartlow to take him into custody. All three officers were placed on paid administrative leave--standard procedure after an officer-involved shooting, a sheriff’s spokesman told the paper. Alaska USA FCU, based in Anchorage, Alaska, has $3.9 billion in assets.
