Violent California police chase ends with 3 dead
« on: July 17, 2014, 02:06:22 AM »
(CNN) -- A wild bank robbery chase that saw two hostages thrown from the getaway car and suspects spraying bullets ended in a gunfight and three people dead in Stockton, California, police said Wednesday.

Two suspects were killed by officers but not before the robbers fatally shot one hostage, police said.

The other suspect was wounded in the gunfight.

The chase began about 2 p.m. at a Bank of the West branch in Stockton. Three suspects took three female hostages from the bank and stole an employee's SUV.

"I noticed that the front (door) of the Bank of the West opened slowly," Jose Maldonado told CNN affiliate KOVR. "Three guys had three guns and had the guns to the hostages' heads. They were petrified. Their faces were white. They were so scared," Maldonado told the station.

Officers chased the car. One hostage was thrown from the vehicle, police said. She had been shot and was taken to a hospital.

The article said the robbers used AK-47's.

I'd like to know the ethnicity of the perps....
