(MURFREESBORO)  Fifth Third Bank at 1861 Memorial Boulevard was robbed around 2:17 Friday afternoon (10/2/2020). 

PIO Larry Flowers told WGNS that the man pointed a gun at the teller and demanded money. She complied, and the man left the bank walking.

Surveillance cameras show that the robber was wearing a surgical mask, an orange hooded sweatshirt, a baseball cap, black pants, and black low-top sneakers.

Middle Tennessee Christian School went on lock-down while a K9 ran a track trying to locate the bank robber. 

The school lifted the lock-down, and dismissal proceeded on time.  Northfield Elementary School was in the process of dismissing, and the School Resource Officer stood guard until students safely boarded buses.

Murfreesboro Police are assisting the FBI with the investigation.

Anyone with information as to the identity of the robber, please call Detective Julia Cox at 629-201-5514 or email at
