    IN - Pregnant teller shot in Indy bank robbery, twin babies die, 22 April 2008

    This is horrible! And I pray this lady will survive and her babies too. It is strange that she was shot because most of the time bank tellers just give the robber the money..they are trained to do that. I wonder if this bank teller was married and what are the circumstances surrounding her pregnancy.

    That's an interesting question, Snowlover. Gosh, I hope they all survive too. Is there any link for this story yet or is it just breaking news there?

    It was just breaking news when I posted. It is curious to me because most bank tellers when robbed are not shot. And her being pregnant makes me all the more curious. Was she targeted? I sure hope not.

    I think this odd too. Have they given a description of the robber yet?

    Yeah, I tend to think that most bank robbers are going for the least human damage possible. They normally just want money.

    I read he is a black man, about 215 pounds, wearing a black leather jacket and blujeans, a mask and a black hat..police also said he wore sunglasses, teal surgical gloves and was carrying a Tec-9 semiautomatic gun. Plica said they believe others are involved..the driver of the blue honda. VERY curious about this story.

    Taximom, I so agree with that. Most bank robbers just want the money. From time to time we will read that people inside a bank were shot but it's usually not the teller but a customer. It is weird.

    It almost sounds, from reading the original article, the gun may have gone off when he jumped over the counter. It's possible he didn't have intentions of shooting anyone and it just happened. Of course, that's no excuse!

    He also fired a shot as he left the bank, so it sounds as if he was hyper. OR......on drugs.

    I'll pray for this poor woman and her babies survival.

    JMHO

    They're questioning two students at a nearby high school. Not calling them suspects yet.

    I use to be an operations specialist for a bank years ago and it's very strange to have someone shot when they are cooperating. And why shoot at just her, and then aim at her stomach? Usually you see upper body wounds. Info is still scant, but this could be a hit made to look like a robbery. IMO, Someone may not have wanted to be a baby daddy. More info and numerous videos at the below link:

    http://www.wthr.com/global/story.asp?s=8207654

    Police are currently questioning two Warren Central High School students. They are not suspects, but police think the students may have seen or heard something that could help the investigation. The students are being brought in for questioning. Police are looking for a third student who was apparently seen on videotape, although Eyewitness News has not confirmed where that videotape came from.

    ETA: The bank is close to a freeway. An indicator that this could be the typical bank robbery. Bank robbers want to get on the freeway and away from the area as fast as possible. The last thing they'd want is to get stuck in traffic. I doubt they'd be going back to school to take that 4th period math test.

    If the teens were involved, you would think they would know that if a crime was comitted in the area, the school would go on lock down. Either they didn't think far enough ahead or they were just skipping. This is just my opinion.
