2 sought in ATM armed robbery, shooting

- Osceola County sheriff's deputies are searching for two men who robbed another man as he was using an ATM drive-thru at a bank off of Cypress Parkway.

A routine ride through the ATM turned into a terrifying trip at the Poinciana Wells Fargo Bank. Two thieves, hiding their faces with their hoodies, robbed a customer in his own car. 

Deputies say the victim pressed on the gas pedal after they told him to get out of his car, but that's when one of the suspects shot the victim in his arm,   It has some Poinciana customers concerned.

"That's scary, because I always come at night," says Kimberly Licona.  "Now that I found that out, I'll come with somebody next time, because as a girl that's scary."

Antoine Montgomery agrees. "It's scary, most definitely scary," he says, adding "I wont let my wife go to the bank by herself."

Deputies say the victim was able to escape and call for help. He suffered minor injuries.

The suspects are described as two black men in their 20s, with slim builds.  Anyone with information is asked to call the Osceola County Sheriff's Office at (407) 348-2222 or Crimeline at (800) 423-TIPS (8477).
