(WMC-TV) – The bank where an attempted ATM robbery took place Tuesday night is offering a reward for information leading to the arrest of the men responsible.
Police are looking for the two armed men who they say tried to rob a woman at an ATM, and then shot her as she tried to get away. She crashed into a utility pole and later died. Police say the same men then carjacked a man and shot him twice, leaving him critically injured.
The crime spree started on South Perkins Road near Knight Arnold Road just before 9 p.m. Tuesday.
When Memphis police responded to a shooting, they saw a vehicle had crashed into a utility pole. Investigators say 44-year-old Roneccia Luster had just left the Orion Credit Union ATM, trying to get away from two men who tried to rob her. As she drove away, they shot her.
An ambulance took Luster to The MED where she was pronounced dead.
"It is frightening. It basically shows you that they were capable of anything, that they wanted to win at all costs. Even to go so far as to shoot a female," said Memphis Police Director Toney Armstrong.
Police say the same two men then tried to steal a car from a man about 200 feet down the road from where the attempted robbery happened. The victim was shot twice as he drove away. He was taken to The MED where he remains in critical condition.
Police are asking for the public's help to find the two armed men responsible for these shootings.
Investigators say the suspects, who were both black men, fled on foot. One of them was wearing a white hoodie.
Orion Federal Credit Union is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the identification and arrest of the suspects.
If you have any information about these crimes, you are asked to contact Crime Stopper at 901-528-CASH.
