A bank robbery went awry when the suspects crashed their getaway car
in a Sacramento, Calif., suburb and took off running to evade
authorities. Ed Tippets was in his back yard, watching several
helicopters bear down on his neighborhood, obviously searching for
someone, when he noticed his dog, Charley, was acting strange.
"That's when I decided to get armed," he told authorities. Tippets
recalled that he went to the back of his house to load his gun and
then began searching room to room. Moving toward the kitchen,
Tippets noticed a shoulder in the doorway of his laundry room. "I
saw a pistol pointing at me, so I started firing," he said. The
homeowner then ran outside where he was ordered to the ground by
police. The suspect, later identified as Jermain Blair, fled the
house and tried to escape by jumping several fences. Blair
confronted two police officers who had given chase and was shot in
the leg. A police task force is investigating 13 other local bank
robberies that may be linked to Blair.
