Hanford police are investigating an officer-involved shooting that occurred Friday night near a Chase Bank after an armed suspect attempted to rob a person at one of the bank's ATMs.
Police responded to calls of an attempted robbery outside the bank on the corner of North Douty and East 10th streets about 8:45 p.m. When police arrived, the suspect pointed his gun at them and ran away into a nearby neighborhood, Hanford police Chief Parker Sever said.
The officer involved in the shooting was unharmed, Sever said, but the suspect was hit, though the severity of his injury was unknown.
No other details were immediately available.
