Bank Heist Suspect Dies In Shootout With Deputies

HOUSTON - One bank robbery suspect is dead and another is wounded after a chase with deputies ended in a shootout in Houston's northeastern suburbs.

A Harris County Sheriff's Office statement says the episode began Thursday afternoon with a holdup at a suburban bank near the Sheldon Reservoir in northeastern Harris County. Five suspects fled the scene in a van with deputies in pursuit.

The van veered into a ditch and two suspects stepped out and pointed their guns at deputies. One suspect was shot dead, while the other was wounded in the shoulder.

Three other suspects tried to flee but were captured.
