Police shoot US robbery suspect after snow slip

Police have shot a suspected Maryland bank robber after he slipped and fell on snow from this week's East Coast blizzard and lost hold of a hostage.
Police in Prince George's County in the Washington suburbs said Friday three other people were injured. The suspect's condition was not immediately known.
Police spokeswoman Lt. Tammy Sparkman said one person, who was not the suspect, was taken to a hospital with gunshot wounds and a police officer also was shot, possibly in the leg.
Video shows a man walking out of a Capitol One Bank in Takoma Park using a woman as a shield.
As he backed away from police, he tripped over a pile of snow from Wednesday's storm. The video shows the woman managing to break away and run toward police.
