VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) - Police say a Portland, Oregon, man who was shot after allegedly robbing a Vancouver bank Monday has died.

Vancouver Police on Tuesday identified the man as 43-year-old Kenneth Allen Pointer.

Police say officers responded to an alarm call Monday at a US Bank branch and say they were told a man had robbed the bank and fled with cash in a vehicle. Police say they were able to track him through a device in the money. Police say a Clark County Sheriff’s Office deputy fired his gun after using a stop stick to halt the vehicle.

Police say the man also fired a weapon and it’s unclear whose bullet struck the man.

A regional major crimes team is investigating.
