“The messenger, who was holding a parcel of money, was standing outside of the Brinks armored truck prior to stocking the ATM,” FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said. “The armed suspect ran from the south side of the parking lot toward the messenger and demanded the bag of money as he shot a round into the ground, according to witnesses.”
The suspect, who was armed with a semiautomatic handgun, ran off with the money, pointing the gun at the messenger as he fled, she said.
The loss was not disclosed, but it was “a large amount” of cash, Eimiller said.READ MORE: 2 Riverside Co. Sheriff's Deputies Recovering After Being Hit By Delivery Van; 2 Women Killed
