NORTHRIDGE, Calif.—Police are continuing an investigation Nov. 1 into a bank robbery in Northridge where two suspects escaped a Wells Fargo branch with an undisclosed amount of cash, and one of the suspects fired a shot.
Officers responded to the 8800 block of Corbin Avenue, near Nordhoff Street, around 2:30 p.m. to a report regarding shots fired at a Wells Fargo, along with thousands of dollars worth of stolen property, according to the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD).
Although details are limited, ABC7 reported that the suspects left with at least $30,000. It was unclear if the robbery occurred inside or outside the bank branch.
Police said a 60 year old was taken to a hospital for minor injuries to a hand that was not related to the shooting.
Detectives described the suspect’s vehicle as a gray Mercedes-Benz, which two men occupied.
Police said one of the suspects was identified as a 5 foot 8 inch Hispanic man weighing 150 pounds and wearing a black shirt, black pants, and a black hat.
The second suspect was unidentified. The weapon used during the robbery was described as a black semi automatic handgun.
