Man Wanted For Dickson Co. Bank Robbery Fatally Shot In Kentucky
LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Authorities in Kentucky said a man fatally shot by deputies was not the man named in a warrant being served but was wanted for bank robbery in Tennessee.
The Jefferson County coroner's office said 53-year-old Albert William Keyes died of multiple gunshot wounds Tuesday morning southeast of downtown Louisville.
Deputies went to his home to serve a Trimble County warrant for flagrant nonsupport, but Jefferson County sheriff's department Lt. Col. Carl Yates said Keyes was not the person named in the warrant.
Keyes went to retrieve identification but slipped out the back door instead. Two other deputies who spotted him in a parking lot fired at him after Yates said Keyes exited his vehicle with a knife.
Keyes was wanted for a February 26 bank robbery in Dickson County, Tennessee.
Authorities said the robber had a gun when he walked into First Federal Bank on Highway 96 in Burns and handed the clerk a note. He fled the scene in a green 2001 Dodge full size truck with a camper shell on it. A witness was able to get a partial tag number: 465.
The vehicle was last seen headed east on Highway 96 toward Interstate 40.
A man with a similar description robbed a US Bank in West Carrollton, Ohio on February 11. The robber in that case also had a gun and handed the teller a demand note.
Police said he also fled in a green pickup truck.
