Authorities say a police chief visiting a western Kentucky bank shot and killed an armed man who entered the bank wearing a stocking over his head.
State Police say Hamm entered the Planters Bank in Princeton shortly after it opened at 8:30 a.m. Friday. There were about five people in the bank, mostly employees, and no one else was hurt.
State Police Trooper Stu Recke says Weedman "just happened to be there" when Hamm entered, carrying the gun and a tool bag.
Recke says the same bank was robbed Wednesday.
