Oklahoma bank president killed in robbery, suspect dies in shootout with police

Police are investigating whether a robber who shot and killed a bank president Thursday in Oklahoma was the same man who beat and robbed a store clerk on Tuesday in Irving.

Detectives are working to determine if the suspect in the Oklahoma bank robbery is responsible for the January 19 robbery in Irving.

A robber disguised as a woman walked into the Bank of Eufaula on Thursday and shot to death President and Chief Executive Randy Peterson, officials and eyewitnesses said. The gunman was then fatally shot by police. The suspect in their case reportedly committed a bank robbery, killing the bank manager, and fled in the Irving victim's stolen auto.

Authorities in Texas, along with OSBI, are trying to discover if Cedric Norris was the same suspect who assaulted a person just days before the deadly Eufaula bank robbery and shootout that left Norris and a bank employee dead as well as two others injured.

Weber says both women who were shot are expected to survive.

Vincent said no law enforcement officers were injured during the pursuit or shootout with the suspect. She later was able to tell investigators she was taken hostage at the bank and was not a part of the robbery.

OHP says law enforcement officials were unharmed. "The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is handling that aspect of the investigation", Vincent said.

Norris was killed and the hostage shot and wounded after a short chase and a shoot-out. According to the FBI, Norris' last known residence was in Texas. A flashing sign that was posted in front of city hall read "Prayers for Eufaula". Weber said he did not know how much money was taken from the bank or how much was recovered from the scene where Norris was shot.
