ARLINGTON, Mass. (AP) - Police in the Boston suburb of Arlington say a bank robbery suspect has been shot and wounded by officers pursuing him and a second suspect.

Arlington police said Friday night that 36-year-old James Riley of Quincy was being treated for serious injuries at a hospital. Twenty-five-year-old Shawn Bambuhew of Everett was arrested. Police said both are charged with bank robbery and assault with a dangerous weapon.

Police said officers responded to a robbery call at Leader Bank on Massachusetts Avenue at 2:40 p.m. Friday. Witnesses gave them descriptions of the suspects and their car. Officers caught up with the men a short distance away on Brooks Avenue. Police said Riley brandished a gun at police, and one officer shot him.

Police said the officer who shot the suspect wasn’t hurt but was taken to the hospital for evaluation.
