Police look for suspects in bank robbery, shootout

HIGH POINT, N.C. (AP) – High Point police are searching for four suspects who took a bag of money from armored truck guards as they were unloading it and made their getaway as the guards shot at them.

The High Point Enterprise reports (http://bit.ly/175klo7) the guards unloaded money from an armored Brinks truck outside SunTrust bank on Eastchester Drive when two masked men approached them with a shotgun Thursday.

Authorities say the two men jumped into a white Dodge Caravan and crashed into a fence behind the bank. They were picked up by a woman driving a Ford F-150 and drove away.

The guards fired shots at the suspects, but it’s not known if any of the suspects were hurt.
