Police ID suspect killed in bank robbery attempt

Police on Wednesday identified the suspect and the security guard who fatally shot him during an attempted bank robbery in south Dallas.

The suspect in the attempted bank robbery Tuesday was 31-year-old Christopher Sebastian Jones.

Jones was fatally shot inside a bank after exchanging gunfire with security guard Matthew Scott Prindle, 36. Jones entered a branch of Chase Bank and shot at Prindle, who was grazed in the upper body but not seriously injured. Prindle returned fire, striking Jones, who died inside the bank.

Members of a police tactical unit entered the bank after seeing a woman hiding under a desk. Officers then found Jones' body.
