LENEXA, Kan. (3/31/09)--A man who may have witnessed a robbery at Credit Union of Johnson County's branch in Lenexa, Kan., was shot several times about two blocks from the credit union as the robber fled the scene Saturday morning.
The victim was rushed to the hospital. His condition is unknown, said several local news sources.
The credit union was robbed just after 9 a.m. Saturday, when a lone man entered the branch, vaulted the counter and displayed a silver pistol, said a spokeswoman with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (Kansas City Star March 28).
