Bank Robber’s Death Found Justified

OLD FORGE -- Officials have ruled that the deadly shooting of a bank robber by police was justified.

The Lackawanna County District Attorney’s office and state police released their findings Friday after investigating the incident.

Authorities say John Souder robbed M & T Bank in Wyoming earlier this month.

Souder then led officers on a nine-mile chase that ended in Old Forge.

Police say Souder got out of his car holding a gun, which prompted the officers to shoot.

Souder later died at a hospital.
