Like a scene from a movie, the three masked robbers burst
through the doors of a Potts Camp, Mississippi, bank, shooting and
screaming orders while a fourth accomplice waited outside in a
getaway car. Plans quickly unraveled for the violent quartet,
however, after their ringleader strode into the bank manager's
office and took a shot from the Colt .357 in manager Rodney Whaley's
hand. Wounded, he scurried to the car where he and the driver fled,
leaving their partners behind. The other two dashed into the woods
on foot in an effort to escape. State and local police were quick
to the scene and with the aid of local citizens armed with their own
rifles, shotguns and scanners, secured every escape route in the
county. All four suspects were arrested as a result.
