PINOLE, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say an attempted robbery at a Northern California bank has left a suspect dead and several others, including a police officer, wounded.

The incident took place Wednesday morning outside a Wells Fargo Bank branch at a Pinole shopping plaza near Interstate 80.

Police say two men approached a Loomis armored truck shortly after 9 a.m. and confronted the truck guard, prompting a shootout.

Pinole Police Chief John Hardester told the Contra Costa Times (http://bit.ly/nrz7tO ) that one suspect was killed and another was wounded.

A police officer who chased the second suspect was shot in the shoulder, and the truck guard also was shot. Both are expected to survive.

Hardester says the second suspect escaped, but was arrested when he showed up at a hospital for treatment.
