Abstract (Document Summary)

It was the 787th bank robbery so far this year in the seven-county Los Angeles area, described by law enforcement officials as "the bank robbery capital of the world." FBI spokesman John Hoos said it was the 120th "takeover" bank robbery-in which everyone in the bank is held at gunpoint.

A Los Angeles Police Department spokeswoman, Officer Lorie Taylor, said investigators are assuming that the person involved in the Home Bank robbery was in fact a woman and not a disguised man. Police, FBI officials and victim counselors said at least 20 people, mostly employees, were in the bank when the robbery and shooting occurred. The female robber, dressed in a green jumpsuit, shouted that a robbery was under way.

[Juan A. Corona-Garcia] began struggling with the woman robber and a gun went off, hitting him in the left side of the neck, Hoos said. Hoos said it is believed the gun was Corona-Garcia's, but police would not confirm that. The robbers then fled.
