Rodriguez stated private investigators originally thought the suspect was being dealt with at a neighboring hospital, but the case ended up being unassociated. If you have any information that may be valuable to this case, please call LVMPD.
” If he’s truly seriously hurt he ought to have gone to the healthcare facility,” Delgado stated. “We’re living in today’s world, and individuals are getting shot robbing a bank? This is not like a village in Texas, so I was really shocked!”
