Search Continues For Bank Robber Who Shot Chino Police Officer

CHINO (CBS) — Authorities are still searching for the gunman who injured a Chino police officer after a botched bank robbery Wednesday afternoon.

The robber engaged in a shootout with the officer, who was patrolling the neighborhood when the suspect fled a California Bank & Trust branch.

The officer drove himself to Chino Valley Hospital, where Mike Armijo saw him stumble out of his patrol car, which was hit several times.

“I told him, ‘The doctors are coming, just relax,'” Armijo told CBS2.

Police say the robber was driving a dark gray Nissan Altima. He’s believed to be in his thirties or forties, KNX 1070’s John Brooks reports.

The officer, who was shot in the leg, remains hospitalized in stable condition.

    I think the guy you were talking about who chose to bemoce homeless would have been Shaughnessy Bishop-Stall. He wrote a book called Down to This: Squalor and Splendor in a Big-City Shantytown’ which was about his time being homeless.
