Bessemer, AL (AHN) – Two employees at an Alabama Wachovia bank were killed Monday when they were shot during a holdup around 9 a.m. Two other employees were wounded, one of them seriously.

Birmingham News reports Bill Vietch, chief assistant district attorney in the Bessemer Cutoff, said, “We have two cases of capital murder and hopefully we won’t have to file a third.”

Reports state that the gunman walked up to the tellers and started shooting. The first two he shot were killed.

The robber took the bank manager hostage after a customer pulled a gun on him. He exited the bank holding a gun to the manager’s head but tripped on a curb outside the building, fell and was shot by police.
