Man killed in shooting after robbery

A suspected bank robber has been shot and killed by a security guard at an Atlanta bank.

Police say two other suspects are still at large.

Police say the guard shot the man just after he robbed the bank, as the man was trying to escape. They say the robber collapsed just outside the front door of the Bank of America branch office.

Just before the shooting, a customer alerted bank officials about suspicious activity in the parking lot. Police say the other two suspects are believed to have been waiting in a vehicle. They fled the scene.

Nobody else inside the bank was hurt.

Police are talking to the security guard — but they say it looks like he acted appropriately.
