Suspect Killed; Officer, Guard Hurt In Pinole Bank Robbery Shootout

PINOLE (CBS SF) -A Pinole police officer and a security guard were injured in a shootout in Pinole Wednesday morning that left one suspect dead and another injured, police said.

The incident began shortly before 9:20 a.m. when two men attempted to rob a Loomis armored truck in front the Wells Fargo bank in the 1300 block of Fitzgerald Drive.

Details about what happened next were not immediately available, but police could confirm that a female security guard was injured by gunfire.

A Pinole police officer responding to the incident was shot in the shoulder but was able to shoot and kill at least one of the suspects.

KCBS’ Anna Duckworth Reports:

Another suspect was arrested after he showed up at Doctors Medical Center in San Pablo seeking treatment for a gunshot wound. He was transferred to John Muir Medical Center, police said.

The officer and the security guard are both expected to survive, police said.

    Hey KPIX – way to stay on top of things!! At 10 am I went to your site for info — I had heard the sirens and then helicopters circling for almost an hour – finally something up on your site almost 2 hours after it first happened! Since this story affects businesses and people you could have put this higher up than a tiny earthquake that happened last night!
    Thankfully Contra Costa Times stays on top of things in the East Bay.

      What tiny earthquake? That was me doing my morning jumping jacks!

    More lost souls/vitims of the USA economy. Desperation. Needing money. No job. If the earthquakes or tornadoes or the hurricanes don’t do this country damage the doomed economy will.

    • Survival

      No, these were just dirt-bags, not “Victims.” They tried to get money through force and use of deadly force at that! This was their second attempt at robbery of an armored truck so I don’t want to hear the bleeding hearts for these two dirt-bags who attempted to take the lives of a security officer and police officer.

      I hope the officers make full recovories and the second Dirt-bag spends the rest of his days in prison!!
