The suspect entered the bank holding a revolver, fired one round into the ceiling and demanded money from the teller. After a uniformed Somerville police officer in the vicinity of Davis Square was alerted to a possible bank robbery in progress, the officer entered the bank and the suspect allegedly fired a round at the responding officer before fleeing the bank on foot.
The suspect is believed to be a light-skinned male in his thirties. He is approximately 5’7” to 5’11” in height, weighs approximately 175 pounds and has a medium build.
