State troopers say they are sending a SWAT team to a home in which a bank robbery suspect might be hiding.
Witnesses told state troopers that at least one of the suspects entered a home on Vista Street. Officials do not know how many of the suspects are in the home.
Church Point police say the suspects shot at a person who tried chasing them in a car following the robbery.
According to Chief Albert Venable, a person followed the suspect vehicle down the road from the bank. Venable says one of the suspects fired a shot at the vigilante. No one was hurt.
Venable says three black men held up the Church Point Bank on Main Street around 1:30 this afternoon. The suspects got away in a red car, which he says might be a Honda.
