BBC News – ‘Leprechaun’ bank robbers die in Tennessee shootout

Nashville, Tennessee

Two suspected bank robbers, one of them wearing a St Patrick’s Day costume, have been killed in a shootout with police in Tennessee.

First State Bank in the Nashville suburb of Gallatin was held up on Wednesday by a man dressed as a leprechaun, police said.

The man left the bank with an undisclosed amount of money.

Both suspects were shot dead when they ditched their vehicle and ran into a field, pursued by police officers.

The costumed suspect had initially walked into a Fifth Third Bank nearby at lunchtime but left again because it was too crowded, witness Bradley Webb told Tennessee’s News Channel 5.
