Two indicted in CU shootout that killed third suspect
NILES, Mich. (6/20/08)--Two men have been indicted in connection with an armed robbery and shootout Jan. 18 at the Niles, Mich., branch of Berrien Teachers CU. A third suspect died in surgery after the shooting. A federal grand jury in Grand Rapids, Mich., indicted Glen Porter and Travis Curry on charges of conspiring to commit armed robbery, attempted armed robbery, and brandishing and discharging firearms during the robbery attempt (WSBT2 June 19). Both could receive a maximum sentence of life in prison. Devarence Kimbrough, a third accused robber, was shot twice and died Jan. 18 in surgery. Curry allegedly waited in the car during the robbery, while Kimbrough and Porter entered the credit union with guns drawn, said U.S. Attorney Charles R. Gross. A shootout with a security guard wounded Porter in the buttocks. Kimbrough was shot twice in the chest and upper body, Gross said. Outside the credit union, the shootout continued with Kimbrough firing at the guard pursuing him. Curry allegedly picked up Porter and Kimbrough, then drove Kimbrough to a Hospital in South Bend, Ind., where he died. Berrien Teachers CU, based in St. Joseph, Mich., has $219 million in assets.
