Suspect Caught After Shot Fired in Miami Shores Bank Robbery

FBI says no one injured in Friday morning bank robbery

A suspect who fired a gunshot into the ceiling during a bank robbery in Miami Shores was caught after a police search Friday, authorities said.

Photos released by the FBI showed the armed suspect inside the TD Bank near 90th Street and Biscayne Boulevard.

Authorities said he demanded money from a teller then fired the shot and fled the scene.

"A lone gunman walked in, demanded money from a teller and he eventually put a round in the roof, shot a round from a handgun into the roof and finally left the bank and fled," FBI Special Agent Michael Leverock said.

It's believed a teller left a GPS device in the bag of cash that helped lead authorities to the area where the suspect went.

Police responded to the area of 109th Street and Northwest 3rd Avenue, where a perimeter was set up.

The suspect was taken into custody a short time later. Authorities haven't released the suspect's name or said what charges he'll face.

No one was injured.
