NEW ORLEANS, La. (KLFY) - Authorities say an armored truck driver was fatally shot during an apparent armed robbery outside of a Louisiana bank.
Ron Moreau, chief development officer for Campus Federal Credit Union, says he received a report that a Loomis armored truck employee was fatally wounded in a shooting outside a drive-thru ATM at the bank on Wednesday. Media outlets report the worker was transported to the hospital, where he later died.
New Orleans police Superintendent Michael Harrison says the employees were at the bank to service the ATM when they were engaged by two unknown people. Shots were fired, but Harrison would not confirm if the guards returned fire.
Officials say it’s too early in the investigation to determine the motive or if money was taken.
