Police: No Arrests In Louisville Bank Robbery, Shooting

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Police were still searching Tuesday for two men who robbed a Louisville bank and shot two employees.

Officer Phil Russell, a spokesman for the Louisville Metro Police Department, said no arrests had been made.

The suspects, believed to be in their late teens or early 20s, appeared to have been wearing masks during the robbery Monday morning. They produced a handgun inside a Chase bank branch and demanded money, then fired two shots just after 9 a.m., police said. They escaped with an undisclosed amount of money.

One victim was shot in the abdomen and the other was shot in one arm, Russell said. Neither has been identified.

Late Monday morning, the FBI released bank surveillance camera photos of the suspects. Both were wearing blue jeans. One wore a blue shirt and a white baseball cap and the other wore a white shirt and a dark cap.

Chase is a consumer and commercial banking brand of JPMorgan Chase & Co., headquartered in New York.
