EUFAULA, Oklahoma (AP) — Two people are dead after a bank robbery in Eufaula Thursday morning. It happened at the Bank of Eufaula at 102 North Main.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says shots were fired inside the bank during the robbery and one person was killed and another was injured.

Troopers say the suspect — who was a man dressed in women’s clothing — and a woman who was with him, fled the bank. A trooper intercepted them as they were driving north in a white SUV on Highway 69 at Road 3 near Checotah.

Shots were fired after the chase ended at an RV park and the man who was dressed as a woman was killed in the shootout, troopers say.

The woman who was with him was wounded in the shootout and is in custody, and investigators are trying to determine if she was part of the robbery plan or if the woman was taken hostage by the robber.

OHP says no troopers were injured in the incident.
