Grand Prairie police say they're searching for a bank robber who targeted the Grand Prairie State Bank in the 2300 block of S. Belt Line Road Friday afternoon.
A man armed with a handgun and wearing a black ski mask to cover his face robbed the bank and ran way from the bank with a large sum of money, according to Grand Prairie police.
Police say the bank manager, who had a gun license fired a shot at the man. He will not face any charges.
Dispatchers say they have asked all hospitals in the area to notify police if anyone with a gunshot wound shows up in the emergency room. Police say while it's a possiblity he was hit, they have not been able to find a blood trail leading away from the bank.
Dispatchers said the man was reportedly wearing a tan camouflaged jacket with black sleeves and jeans as he ran north from the bank.
Police will not say if they believe the robber is the so-called "Mesh Mask Bandit," the man wanted for 14 bank robberies in Grand Prairie, Dallas, Garland, Carrollton, Addison, Lewisville and Arlington. The FBI is offering a $15,000 reward for the capture of the "Mesh Mask Bandit."
