In an incredible scene today in Tacoma, Washington, an alleged bank robber exists a bank with a female teller as his hostage. Police with guns drawn are waiting for him. He walks the hostage in front of him as a shield. As he tries to walk backwards over a pile of ice and snow he slips and falls. The woman runs toward police and the robber follows with his gun just a short distance from the woman’s back.
Police fired and he is dead. Very dramatic video below.This photo still shows the robber only inches from the woman as she reaches police.
