CROSBY, Texas - A bank robber and a police deputy exchanged gunfire in broad daylight outside a Crosby bank Tuesday afternoon.
Investigators said a Harris County sheriff's deputy spotted two men running out of the Community Bank of Texas at 14100 FM 2100 around 1:45 p.m. Tuesday.
When the deputy tried to stop them, one of the men shot at him, then both suspects ran away.
Moments later, investigators said the alleged robber and his accomplice stole a truck being serviced at a nearby dealership and led police on a series of chases. One of the suspects was reportedly dropped off at an apartment and picked up by a person in another vehicle. Deputies said one of their officers chased that car, but eventually lost sight of it.
It was then that a Texas State Trooper spotted the car and was able to take two suspects into custody. They continue to look for the third suspect; police believe he was the man who shot at the deputy. Deputies said he is most likely driving the stolen black Ford F-150 truck taken from the dealership.
No one inside the bank was injured, but customers and employees said they were threatened at gunpoint.
