Bank Robber Claims To Have Bomb Attempting To Rob Bank

DANIA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Authorities in South Florida say a man claiming to have a bomb attempted to rob a bank and the suspect was later shot and wounded by sheriff’s deputies.

The Broward Sheriff’s Office says it received a call shortly before noon Friday that a robbery was in progress at a Chase bank branch.

The suspect was shot outside the bank. It wasn’t immediately clear if the man actually had a bomb. His condition was not immediately available but a sheriff’s spokeswoman said he was alive.

The bank was evacuated and the sheriff’s bomb squad was beginning its evaluation.
