Armored Truck Armed Robbery Suspect Shot And Killed

A 47-year-old armed robbery suspect from Kenosha was shot and killed during an attempted armed robbery of an armored truck Friday, May 5, 2023, but not before shooting one of the armored truck employees first.

The incident happened at the North Shore Bank near 58th and Forest Home in Milwaukee Friday evening.

A 36-year-old armored truck guard from Kewaskum sustained a non life threatening injury during the attempted robbery of the armored truck. Officials say a different guard,
a 25-year-old Watertown man, then fired at the robbery suspect striking him.

Milwaukee police say the robbery suspect died at the scene from his injuries.

In January an armored truck was robbed of more than $100,000 at a different North Shore Bank at 79th and Capitol. No arrests were made in that robbery.
