    Police spokesman Sgt. Christopher Scott said the robbery was reported at the Tradesman Credit Union at 1400 Second Ave. A man robbed the bank after passing a note to the teller saying he had a gun. He took off on foot.

    Police said the man carjacked a van and a short chase ran from near the credit union onto Interstate 235 to and then off the interstate just south of the East University Avenue exit near I-235.

    "Several squad cars were in the area, get into a little car chase with this van. As you can see the van came to a stop as result of a police cruiser," said Scott.
    Man shot after police chase, credit union robbery.

    The chase ended near Hubbell Avenue and Burson Street around 12:35 p.m. At least three police cars are parked right next to a white van at the scene.

    "When that car came to a stop, there were shots fired by the police department," said Scott.

    Scott said Robin Brooks, 27, was shot at least once. Brooks was listed in stable condition on Friday afternoon.

    Neighbors watched the chase and shooting happen right before their eyes.

    "I just seen the smashing of the van hitting the car. I seen the guy come out with a gun an hit it drawn," said Tennille Scroggins. "All the sudden I seen the cop go after, try to get him and then I heard gunshots."

    "The cops just opened fire on the van and then the guy jumped out with a gun," said Troy McConnell.

    Witness Antonio Ramos, who lives near the scene, said the shots sounded like "a bunch of fireworks being popped."

    Brooks was taken into custody at the scene and put in an ambulance.

    Brooks was charged with attempted murder, first-degree theft and second-degree robbery.

    Since some people need to be told by notes in crayon .......Don't PM me with without prior permission. If you can't discuss the situation in the open forum ----it must not be that important

    My new word for the day is FOCUS, when someone irritates you tell them to FOCUS

        I'm glad the officers are okay, and the bad guy stopped.

        I wonder if they'll debrief the bank employees? It's a scary business, being robbed.

          I wonder if his head is always crooked or if that is his cool pose?
