A bank employee was shot during a robbery at a SunTrust bank in north Atlanta.
FBI Special Agent Stephen Emmett says the victim was pulled from a side office and shot in the leg Monday morning after two men entered the bank brandishing weapons.
Emmett called it a "takeover-style" robbery, as both the gunmen announced their intentions after walking into the branch around 10:16 a.m. He says at one point a suspect pointed a gun directly at the head of a bank customer.
He says both the suspects escaped with an undisclosed amount of money. He says they left the building on foot and then jumped into a blue or black minivan.
The FBI and DeKalb County police are investigating. Anyone with information should call the FBI at (404) 679-9000.
