Last Wednesday, 20-year-old Terry Frost decided it’d be a good idea to try to rob a bank in Cincinnati, Ohio. Unfortunately for him, this turned out to be a deadly mistake.
According to Liveleak, surveillance footage from the Fifth Third Bank on Madison Road shows Frost jump over the teller’s counter and pull out a gun. He had no idea that off-duty cop Kevin Hankerson was in the bank as well.
Video shows Hankerson pull out his service weapon and open fire on Frost. The wannabe-robber fled the scene after being shot, and police later found him dead in the woods nearby.
Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters says Hankerson’s actions were “absolutely justified” and they applauded him for the “tremendous act of bravery” he completed when he pushed a female teller out of the way. He added that Hankerson will not face any charges for the shooting.
At the time of the robbery, the teller had just removed $90,000 from the ATM, and Deters suspects Frost knew the money had been withdrawn.
“The speed in which he got to that money – it literally was two seconds from the time he entered that door. So he was in a full sprint and then vaulted himself over the counter,” said Deters. “He was going after something. I mean, if it was a normal bank robbery he’d be going up and handing a note to somebody and that’s the end of it. This was not normal.”
