At least 2 people wounded in Dallas bank shootout

DALLAS (AP) - Witnesses and authorities say a shootout outside a Dallas bank has left at least two people wounded and customers and employees locked in the bank's vault.

The shooting happened just before 11 a.m. outside the United Texas Bank. The bank is located on the first floor of the Four Forest high-rise office building, near the intersection of U.S. 75 and Interstate 635.

A witness tells KRLD-AM of Dallas that a bank customer went outside, then came back inside and said, "You'd better lock your doors." Another witness reported seeing a man sitting in a chair with blood all over his chest.

There's still no word on precisely how many people were wounded and their conditions were not known. But police say the building is now secure.
