The FBI said a uniformed Somerville police officer in the vicinity was alerted to a possible bank robbery in progress. When he went to the bank, the suspect allegedly fired a shot at the officer for the flight from the bank on foot.

A video from outside the bank showed a passer-by trying to stop the suspect.

“He is dangerous. And he is desperate, absolutely. The video shows that clearly,” former Boston police chief Dan Linskey told the Boston 25. “That is someone we need to get out of the street very quickly.”
