A female bank employee who called 911 told the dispatcher, "We're getting robbed, and the guy told me to call the police." The man apparently jumped the teller line, held what appeared to be a gun in his hat, and demanded nothing more than the call.
The call was made just before 3 p.m. Three hours later, 19-year-old Devon Mitchell of Cary emerged from the bank holding what police believed was a gun to the head of a woman. Police shot and killed Mitchell.
UPDATE: On Sunday (Feb. 13), the Cary PD's Chief Pat Bazemore announced that Mitchell was unarmed, described him as "troubled" and said he wanted bank employeed to believe he had a gun, reports WRAL.com.
