A white male between 5'5" and 5'7" with dark hair entered the lobby of the bank wearing a mask demanding money.  At least one shot was fired in the lobby, but no one was injured.  The suspect took an undisclosed amount of cash and fled the building.

"After he stole the money he ended up stealing a vehicle from one of the employees, fled the scene on Moss Street, and the vehicle was recovered a short time later on the 100 block of Coffren," says Corporal Paul Mouton, Lafayette Police Department.

Police recovered this photo from the surveillance cameras in the bank. They are currently looking for other businesses in the area with surveillance that might have captured the suspect.  If you have any information call Lafayette Police or Crime Stoppers at 232-TIPS.
