OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – A published report says the suspect in a bank robbery in which the president of the Bank of Eufaula was fatally shot had been released from prison by mistake.

The suspect, 39-year-old Cedric Lamont Norris, died during a shoot-out with police following Thursday’s bank robbery.

Records indicate that Norris had been released from a Texas prison in March 2012 although he still had to complete 60-year and 10-year prison sentences in Oklahoma.

The Oklahoman reports (http://bit.ly/1PujOBW ) that Norris was arrested in Dallas in February 2005 after jewelry store robberies in Oklahoma and Texas. He was moved in December 2005 to Tulsa County and then Creek County for trials. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison for a Tulsa jewelry store robbery and 60 years for a robbery in Sapulpa.
