A detective from a New Jersey sheriff's department fatally shot a bank robbery suspect Thursday, officials said. The robbery at a PNC bank was reported around 5:30 p.m., officials from the prosecutor's office said. Two detective from the Essex County Sherifs's Office were in the area working a narcotics investigation with Orange Police and rushed over.

The man allegedly robbed the bank a half hour before closing.

They found the suspect, officials said. He had a handgun and ignored the officers.

He was shot by one of the detectives and rushed to University Hospital, but he did not survive, officials said.

“They happened to be on the scene at the right time, in the right place," said Essex County Sheriff Armando Fontoura. "Sometimes we’re called to do things that we’re not fond of - but they are things that we need to do."

His gun and a bag filled with the proceeds of the robbery were found by police. The man's identity has not yet been released.

The bank is currently closed.

"This office is temporarily closed due to an emergency," reads a sign posted on a PNC Bank location.

A source close to the investigation said the suspect then fled the bank on foot…making it as far as a nearby building courtyard, next to a train station.
