Woman killed two injured in robbery at CU ATM
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (12/23/10)--A woman died Wednesday morning after she was shot during a robbery attempt while withdrawing cash from an ATM at a credit union in Knoxville, Tenn. Also injured were the shooting suspect, who was shot by police, and a man in a second car at another ATM. Davida Nicholson, 46, was withdrawing funds from the ATM at TVA Employees CU when she allegedly was approached by the suspect, Brandon James Johnson, 20, who was wielding two guns. When she tried to shut the door to her truck and pull away, the suspect allegedly shot her. The truck struck the credit union building, police said (VolunteerTV.com Dec. 22and Knoxnews.com Dec. 22). Johnson then apparently opened fire on a second vehicle pulling away from another ATM. The driver, William Letsinger, 36, was hurt but not taken to a hospital. The suspect then allegedly continued shooting at other vehicles and pulled Nicholson's 21-year-old mentally challenged son from the truck and climbed in. Two officers arrived while he was still shooting. He reportedly refused to drop his guns and was shot in the neck by an officer. Nicholson and Johnson were rushed to a nearby hospital where Nicholson was pronounced dead at 9:07 a.m. Johnson was treated and released. He has been charged with felony murder, attempted first degree murder, and three counts of aggravated assault against Nicholson's son and two police officers. The shooting did not involve the credit union or its employees. The credit union was closed at the time, but employees were inside preparing to open for business. The first call to 911 came from the credit union, said WBIR.com (Dec. 22).
