Suspect dies after shootout at CU
NILES, Mich. (1/22/08)--A suspect involved with an attempted armed robbery and shootout at the Niles, Mich., branch of Berrien Teachers CU died in surgery at a local hospital Friday. The suspect was allegedly shot during the attempted robbery Friday morning by a security guard. Two men entered the credit union at 10 a.m. and exchanged gunfire, both inside and outside of the credit union, with the guard. At least five shots were fired, police told the Tribune (Jan. 18). After the shooting, the two suspects fled the credit union in a car driven by a third suspect. They dropped off the injured suspect at a local hospital, police told the newspaper. Some members were at the credit union during the shooting. Police are not sure how much money was taken. Police may have found the car the suspects were driving. The vehicle was described as a grey four-door sedan, the newspaper said. Berrien Teachers CU, based in St. Joseph, Mich., has $219 million in assets.
