Boynton Beach Officers Shoot, Kill Robbery Suspect

BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- Boynton Beach police have identified the man who fired at officers who tried to stop him after a bank robbery.
Police spokeswoman Stephanie Slater says 52-year-old Calvin Wallace was fatally shot by officers Tuesday evening in Palm Beach County.
The shooting happened shortly after officers tried to stop a vehicle matching the description of a getaway car in an armed robbery. Slater says Wallace refused to stop and officers continued pursuing the vehicle until it crashed into another car. Wallace then fired at the officers. Two officers shot back, killing him. One of the officers struck in the foot by a bullet has been released from the hospital.
The officers are on paid administrative leave, standard in any officer-involved shooting. The FBI is investigating the bank robbery in Delray Beach.
