MIDLOTHIAN - A police chase ended off of Spur 73 near the intersection of Highways 67 and 287 Tuesday with a bank robbery suspect allegedly charging at police before officers shot the man dead.

The suspect allegedly robbed a Wells Fargo Bank in Cedar Hill around 3:15 p.m. The suspect led police on a chase into Midlothian before his Jeep ran into a ditch.

The man got out of the vehicle and tried to run. Officers say he had a weapon in his hand and when he charged towards an officer, he was shot and killed.

The investigation is on-going and the suspect's name has not been released, as next of kin are still being notified.

No one was hurt in the robbery and there were no reports of officer injuries.
