Man suspected of bank robbery preceding a fatal crash in custody

Posted under Wrongful death

A 22-year-old robbery suspect is currently in custody following his release from a Milwaukee hospital, Fox News reported on April 29.

Allegedly, the suspect attempted to rob an unnamed 25-year-old man in the parking lot outside of a U.S. Bank around 11:30 on the 28th. The man immediately reported the robbery to a bank teller, who alerted the police.

As police sped to the Milwaukee parking lot to investigate, the suspect fled the scene, heading northbound on a city street at 60mph. After failing to stop at a stop sign, the suspect crashed into a westbound vehicle, causing the vehicle to pitch sideways into a nearby building. The innocent driver, 54-year-old Edward Adams, was killed on the spot. His family reports that he was on his way to a lunch outing.

The suspect was taken to a nearby hospital to treat his injuries, but has since been released from the hospital and is currently in custody. The man’s fate is pending judgment from the Milwaukee Country District Attorney.
