Violent California Bank Robbery Leaves Teen in Custody and Three Dead
Three suspects robbed the Bank of the West in California, escaping by taking three female hostages. During an hour police chase and gun battle, two of the hostages either jumped or were thrown from the escape car, leaving one shot and one grazed. The robbers used AK-47-type assault rifles to disable several police cars and an assault vehicle during the chase. When the bullets stopped flying, two suspects were left dead as well as the third hostage, who had been used as a human shield. Jaime Ramos, the 19-year-old third suspect, was charged with murder and robbery. All three suspects were members of the Nortenos street gang.
