FBI Releases Video in Shooting of Loomis Guard
The FBI Violent Crime Task Force is releasing video of the gunman who shot a Loomis armed guard earlier this month. The gunman got away empty handed with the assistance of a getaway driver. Investigators are hoping video of the armed robbers and their getaway car will lead to a break in the case. Crime Stoppers of Houston and Loomis are offering a reward of up to $15,000 for information that leads to the identification and arrest of the armed robber, getaway driver, or any others who took part in this violent robbery.
On Friday, November 6 at approximately 2:20 p.m., a Loomis armored guard team was conducting business at the Bank of America located at 5200 North Shepherd Drive in Houston, Texas, when a gunman opened fire with a high-caliber rifle. While under fire and hit several times by the gunfire, the guard was able to get inside the armored vehicle and close the door. The guard survived the shooting after being taken to a local hospital. The gunman fled without any cash. He ran eastbound away from the bank towards a blue or purple four-door sedan, which was waiting for him on Hohldale Street with a getaway driver. The vehicle left the area headed eastbound on Hohldale Street and turned onto El Centro Street. The armed robber also left behind a stolen white Jeep Patriot he used in the crime. The Jeep may have been recently detailed and its windows appeared to have been recently tinted with “limo” tint. The gunman was described as a black male, approximately 5’9” to 6’2” tall. He wore a gray, long-sleeved “hoodie” and a bulletproof vest. The gunman had a noticeable limp when running.
