Bank offers reward for information about robbery

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- A Memphis bank where two people were shot during an attempted robbery of an ATM is offering a reward of $10,000 for information leading to the identification and arrest of the suspects.

Memphis police said two armed men tried to rob 44-year-old Roneccia Luster at the Orion Federal Credit Union ATM on Tuesday night. As she drove away, she was shot and crashed into a utility pole. She was later pronounced dead at the hospital.

WMC-TV in Memphis reports that police believe the same two men tried to steal a car near the bank and the victim was shot twice and is in critical condition at the hospital.

Anyone who has information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers at 901-528-CASH.
