A Maryland bank robbery suspect is dead after being shot when he slipped and fell on snow and lost hold of a hostage.

Officials in Prince George's County in the Washington suburbs said Friday at least two other civilians were injured, as well as a police officer. The injuries were not life-threatening.

Video showed a man walking out of a Capitol One Bank in Takoma
Park using a woman as a shield. Police say the suspect was holding
a gun to the hostage's head.

As he backed away from police, he tripped over a pile of snow
from Wednesday's big East Coast storm. The video shows the woman managing to break away and run toward police. Police opened fire shortly afterward.
