About two hours earlier, another robbery occurred at the same bank, police stated.

The unidentified victim was taken to a hospital and treated for her injuries.

Officers found the man, described as a 46-year-old transient, fleeing the scene and arrested him, according to the news release.

The woman’s property was recovered and returned.

The first robbery was not related to the fatal shooting, the Police Department stated.
