Robbery suspect pleads guilty in shooting member
KANSAS CITY (3/17/10)--A man pleaded guilty Monday in a Kansas City federal court to robbing CU of Johnson County, Lenexa, Kan., and shooting a 71-year-old member who pursued him in 2009. Nicholas E. Kamphaus, 26, pleaded guilty to one count of armed bank robbery, one count of discharging a firearm during a crime of violence and one count of attempted murder of a witness, said federal authorities (The Kansas City Star via Kansas City.com March 16). The member, who was shot several times, survived (New Now April 27). Kamphaus entered the credit union on March 28, 2009, jumped the counter, took money from tellers and fled with an undisclosed amount of cash, the newspaper said. Once he left the building, Kamphaus was spotted by an elderly man who trailed him. A short time later, police found the man in his minivan with the hazard lights flashing, the paper said.
