    CA - Misty Holt-Singh, 41, hostage killed in Stockton bank robbery, 16 July 2014

    ' Friends and family are mourning the death of a hostage who was killed after a bank robbery, high-speed chase and police shootout (Wednesday) in Stockton.
    She was a wife and a mother.'

    Misty Holt-Singh, with her little girl, was a customer at the bank when armed robbers took her and two bank employees hostage. Two suspects also died, one during the car chase, one later in hospital. The pursuit of the suspects has rocked the community. The chase lasted 45 minutes, involved damage to 14 vehicles and resulted in houses and vehicles being sprayed with bullets. The suspects were armed with an AK-47 type rifle. Two other hostages managed to jump from the vehicle during the chase, slightly injured, but Misty was used as a human shield.

    It's not clear who shot her.

    'It was at the Bank of the West on Hammer Lane in Stockton that the daughter of Misty Holt-Singh waited to hear what happened to her mother. Misty was taken hostage by three men who had just robbed the bank.'

    Misty's 12 yr old daughter was left at the bank, and texted her dad that mom had been taken hostage. For a long time the family just waited, hoping Misty would be rescued safe.

    The third hostage the bank customer was found dead inside of the SUV due to gunfire, Stockton police said. Stockton Police Chief Eric Jones said she was used as a human shield during the firefight, but it is unclear who shot her.'

    Sounds like trigger happy LE! This is overkill by a non-skilled police dept. Hostages being used as human shields, houses and vehicles sprayed with flying bullets, and LE keeps returning fire.

    Where were the expert shooters? Why didn't LE shoot the tire/s out? Where were armored vehicles to get close or intercept the robbers?

    From the original post, the statement from the Stockton police "but it is unclear who shot her", oh really?!
    A moving vehicle, lots of LE shooting many guns, what a stupid remark! Bet there will be lawsuits over this incident.

    From the description of this shoot out, it is amazing more people were not injured.

    My opinions only!

    I watched the chase live online, as well as seeing the two suspects on the ground outside of their vehicle at the conclusion. I had heard there was a hostage but didn't see one. Now I know why. I'm so heartbroken to hear that she didn't survive. My prayers are with her family.

    Jones said police are seeking to question Pablo Ruvalcaba, 21, who may have dropped the suspects off at the bank. He described Ruvalcaba as a person of interest, not a suspect.

    In addition, officials with the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives said at Thursday's news conference that the agency was offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person who supplied the robbers with an AK-47.

    Investigators have been unable to trace the weapon, which does not have a serial number and appears to have been made by an unlicensed manufacturer.

    An indictment unsealed Monday charged two men with murder, kidnapping and other crimes in a violent bank robbery and shootout with police that ended with the deaths of a woman taken hostage and two other suspects.

    Jaime Ramos, 20, and Pablo Ruvalcaba, 21, were each charged with three counts of murder in addition to robbery, kidnapping, carjacking and gang counts. Authorities say Ruvalcaba drove Ramos and the two other suspects to the bank.

    California law allows murder charges to be filed against anyone involved in a crime in which someone is killed. The indictment also contained 35 counts of attempted murder for each of the officers involved in the shootout.
