Video After The Jump
A bank robber made a key mistake trying to escape with a hostage in tow and got his brains blown out because of it.
Armed with a handgun and a fake bomb made of a sponge wrapped in foil and duct tape with copper wires sticking out of it. The would be thief entered a Capitol One Bank in Tacoma, Washington.
He was quickly in over his head as one customer tried to wrestle his gun away from, but got pistol whipped instead, while someone else hit the alarm button.
As police surrounded the bank, the suspect comes out with a hostage. Smoke from dye packets could be seen coming out of his bag as he moved towards he parking lot away from police. But then he slips, loses his grip of the hostage who run towards police. Inexplicably the suspect runs in the same direction and gets lit up with bullets.
