PASCO, Wash. — Officers from the Pasco Police Department released images of a suspect accused of robbing a man at gunpoint while he was taking money out of an ATM on Saturday night.

According to a Facebook post by the Pasco Police, the robbery occurred around 11:30 p.m. on Saturday, June 5. The victim was driving his black, four-door sedan with his family and stopped to withdraw money from an ATM. He arrived at HAPO Community Credit Union on the 2700-block of N 20th Ave near the Red Lion Inn when the suspect came up from behind him and pointed a black semi-automatic pistol at him.

Authorities say that the suspect demanded everything that the victim had. The victim dropped his cash on the ground and drove away, but the suspect fired two shots in the process. No one was injured and the car did not sustain any damage in the incident. Officers later recovered two spent bullet casings that were brought in as evidence.
