The shooting occurred when the woman drove her car into the lane to access the outside night depository. Before she could make a deposit, a man with a 9mm pistol and wearing a dark hoodie approached from the front of her car.

He yelled at her for the money and tried to open her car door, but she locked it. The robber then fired a bullet into the driver’s side rear window. He then shot a second time into the driver’s window, hitting the woman in the left leg.

The robber grabbed the deposit bag from inside the car and ran away. The woman was taken to Tampa General Hospital for non-life threatening injuries.
