An alleged bank robber was shot and killed Friday morning during a dramatic hostage situation outside of a Capital One Bank on University Boulevard East in Takoma Park, Md.

Chopper4 captured the hostage situation as it unfolded at about 9:30 a.m. at the corner of New Hampshire Avenue and University Boulevard, just as the alleged robber came out of the bank with gun to the head of a female hostage. The suspect used the woman as a shield but he was eventually shot by police.

The suspect held the female bank teller hostage as he left the bank, located in the 1100 block of University Boulevard East. As police surrounded them, a dye pack apparently went off. There was a brief struggle between the alleged robber and the hostage, and the woman started to run. The alleged robber chased after her, but appeared to slip on ice and was shot by police.

The alleged robber was taken into custody and was later pronounced dead.
