One Arrested in Buckhead Bank Robbery

ATLANTA -- Police officers responded late this morning to a reported bank robbery at a SunTrust Bank branch at 3020 Peachtree Road in Buckhead.

Eyewitnesses said gunfire broke out between the bank robbery suspect and a bystander. 11Alive's Doug Richards said they bystander was a cab driver who had stopped next to the bank.

It appears the bank robber wanted to use the taxicab as a getaway vehicle, and that the driver resisted - with firepower. Police took the robbery suspect into custody along with his weapon.

No injuries were reported.
