Customer shot at Muncie credit union; police seek robbery suspect


*MIK*) A SCARY SITUATION TODAY — A CUSTOMER IN A CREDIT UNION WAS SHOT IN THE LEG IN THE MIDDLE OF A ROBBERY. *BROOK*) IT HAPPENED THIS AFTERNOON IN MUNCIE. WISH TV’S DAN KLEIN SPOKE WITH CUSTOMERS AND POLICE.. AND THEY ARE A LITTLE DIVIDED ON WHETHER HIS ACTIONS WERE GUTSY… OR RISKY. *DA*) THIS COULD HAVE ENDED SO VERY DIFFERENTLY. INSTEAD.. THE CUSTOMER IS RECOVERING. AND THE ROBBER IS STILL BEING HUNTED BY POLICE. *DAN KLEIN REPORTIN*) A CONFRONTATION IN A CREDIT UNION.. ROBBER WITH A GUN.. FACING OFF WITH A CUSTOMER WHO APPARENTLY WASN’T GOING TO STAND BY AND LET IT HAPPEN. OFC. CHASE WINKLE 3 “I CERTAINLY DON’T THINK IT’S STUPID…I THINK HE’S DOING THE RIGHT THING. IT’S JUST DANGEROUS.” ARMED ROBBERIES IN MUNCIE.. “VERY RARE.” TO SAY NOTHING OF WHEN THE GUN ACTUALLY GOES OFF. BUT IT ALL UNFOLDED INSIDE THE PRIMETRUST FEDERAL CREDIT UNION ON SOUTH MADISON WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON.. SHORTLY AFTER NOON. A MAN WITH A GUN WALKING IN.. GETTING AWAY WITH SOME CASH.. BUT NOT BEFORE A CUSTOMER TRIED TO STOP HIM. THANKFULLY.. THE BULLET ONLY GRAZED HIS LEG AND HE DIDN’T EVEN NEED TO GO TO THE HOSPITAL. WINKLE 5 “I’M NEVER GOING TO FROWN ON WHAT HE DID. WE’RE NOT GOING TO RECOMMEND PEPOLE PUT THEMSELVES, THAT’S OUR JOB.” ROBERT ELMORE WAS INSIDE MINUTES BEFORE. ELMORE 1 “I’M GLAD I WASN’T AROUND.” KATHY SHEPPARD 2 “WOULD YOU EVER TRY TO STOP A BANK ROBBERY?” “DEPENDS ON THE SITUATION.” AS FOR WHAT THAT CUSTOMER DID.. FELLOW PATRONS ARE DIVIDED IF IT WAS BRAVE OR FOOLISH. APRIL TOWNSEND 2 “BRAVE.” SHEPPARD 3 “I THINK IT WSA A LITTLE BIT OF BOTH.” ELMORE 2 “SOUNDS LIKE A HERO TO ME.” STILL.. ELMORE 3 “IT’S NOT WORTH YOUR LIFE.” APRIL TOWNSEND DOESN’T LIVE FAR AWAY. TOWNSEND 1 “IT’S SCARY.” BUT.. SHE’S PREPARED. “WELL GOOD THING I HAVE CAMERAS AND I’M ARMED AT HOME AND TAKE PRECAUTIONS.” *DA*) THERE WAS A LITTLE BIT OF CONFUSION EARLIER THIS AFTERNOON. THE ROBBER GOT AWAY ON A BIKE.. AND POLICE ARRESTED A MAN ON THE BIKE IN THE NEARBY NEIGHBORHOOD MATCHING THAT DESCRIPTION. AND AT FIRST THEY THOUGHT THEY HAD THEIR MAN. BUT THEY LATER DETERMINED.. IT’S NOT THE SAME GUY. HE WAS WANTED ON FELONY WARRANTS AND SO IS STILL IN
