Police: Suspect shot by off-duty officer connected to 5 bank robberies

Posted: Updated:
DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. -

Investigators say an off-duty DeKalb police officer who shot a man at a bank helped to stop a serial bank robber.

Last December, Eric Roberts was shot while trying to rob Capital City Bank and Trust in Stone Mountain, according to investigators.

Police say the suspect, who later died, was connected to five other bank robberies in the area.

The deputy who thwarted what would have been the sixth robbery said he was just doing his job, according to authorities.
