Hero security guard saves colleagues’ lives as he shoots ‘drugged-up’ robber in terrifying bank raid

A security guard is being hailed a hero for saving his colleagues’ lives after shooting1 a ‘drugged-up’ bank robber.

Brian Harrison will not face criminal charges after firing two shots and fatally injuring the masked man.

The incident occurred on January 20 at the Alpine Bank2 in Rockford, Illinois.

Police say 34-year-old Laurence Turner, from Rockford, tried to rob the bank3 on Friday afternoon. He is said to have fired a shot at the ceiling.

Brian Harrison fired two shots at Laurence Turner

In the clip, Turner can be seen shooting into the air and it is at this point that Harrison and Turner exchange gunfire. After guns are fired, Turner turns and tries to flee from the bank, but collapses from his rooms in the doorway.

According to WIFR News4 , Turner was on drugs at the time of the shooting and was later pronounced dead at the scene.

No employees were injured during the incident and no customers inside the bank were hurt.

Authorities believe Turner may have been involved in similar robberies in the Rockford area of the past few months.

Winnebago County State’s Attorney Joe Bruscato said: “There is no doubt in my mind that the actions of Brian Harrison saved the lives of those that were employees in the Alpine Bank location on that date and saved his own life.”

Lynx shower gel bottles slapped with security tags at Co-op to ward off desperate shoplifters

Lynx shower gel bottles have been slapped with security tags at a supermarket after a spate of thefts. The Co-op has taken action to tackle shoplifters thieving the 2.89 grooming product off the shelves at a branch in Stobswell, Dundee. Electronic devices have also been applied to jars of coffee and other low value items in a move branded “tragic” by charity workers and anti-poverty campaigners.

Mike Strachan, from charity Dundee The Caring City, said he wasn’t surprised by the security threat to Lynx products. He said: “It’s a sign of how desperate things are becoming . It’s a sad situation when people feel they have to steal goods just to keep clean.

“It’s the first I’ve heard of this type of thing happening, but some of the action groups are probably quite aware of this being the case.

“It’s a reflection of the system that we live in that we are having to put security tags on something which should be a basic human right — the right to be clean.”

Local Conservative MSP Bill Bowman said: “It is a sad indictment of the level of crime in parts of Dundee that shopkeepers are having to put security tags on low value items like shower gel.”

A spokesman for The Co-op said: “As part of our security measures we vary the range of products that we apply security tags to in order to deter criminal activity.

“We work closely with the police, and explore a range of security measures to deter theft and to increase the likelihood of convictions.

“This can include security tags on a range of products.”

Lynx, owned Unilever, is marketed “towards the young male demographic”.

Stobswell was listed as one of the highest crime areas in Scotland in the 2012 Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation and in the bottom fifth in the country for deprivation generally.
