Shots fired at WPB Wachovia Bank

Posted by Rachel Leigh email

SUBURBAN WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - Shots have been fired at the Wachovia Bank ATM on Haverhill and Okeechobee Blvd.

Two Loomis National Cash Handling Company employees working from an armored car were restocking the local ATM when two assailants approached and opened fire on the drivers with an AK-47. One driver was shot in the leg and is currently at the hospital.

We're told at least one man was spotted in a ski mask, and the shooters fled in a van that has just been found in the 5600 block of Haverhill. One suspect was taken into custody after a foot chase at Myla Lane.

Police tell us they're still looking for the other assailant and have set up a perimeter in the area to catch him. Clothing and a weapon have been recovered around the canal.

The bank is located at 4900 Okeechobee Blvd. We'll keep you updated as we learn more about this shooting.
