UPDATE: Fort Myers Police have arrested three people in a bank robbery Saturday afternoon.
Thurnal Glover, Le'Nal Glover, and Ajaria Simon were arrested and charged with robbery with a firearm.
Police arrived at the Chase Bank on Lee Boulevard Saturday around 12:30 P.M. in regard to a robbery that had just occurred involving three suspects.
Police say it was reported that during the robbery one of the suspects discharged a weapon as they were leaving the bank.
Fort Myers Police and the Lee County Sheriff's Office searched the area for the three suspects and car used in the getaway.
The car was found in the area of Leonard Boulevard and Lee Boulevard after the car failed to stop for a deputy and later crashed after one of the tires came off of the car.
Three suspects fled from the car and were later found and apprehended after a search by law enforcement.
Witnesses reported hearing gunshots after a robbery at a Lehigh Acres bank Saturday.
"I was scared to death because i didn't know if it was still going on or not," said Kevin Ocampo.
According to witnesses, the robbery happened early Saturday afternoon while customers were inside the bank located along Lee Blvd and State Road 82.
"We just saw a whole bunch of cops just surrounding the back and we asked an employee what happened," said Ocampo.
Fort Myers police and FBI detectives canvassed the area looking for evidence, placing most of their attention on a rear parking spot.
"It was absolutely terrifying," said Rebecca Hernandez. "I mean really, the shots fired, it was scary."
Hernandez was shopping at Publix in the same plaza when she heard the gun shots.
"It was so frightening that it was just kind of a shock honestly," said Hernandez.
Fort Myers police hasn't released any details about what happened inside the bank, but according to witnesses two men stormed the bank demanding cash.
Shoppers like Hernandez are surprised anyone would target a bank in a busy plaza.
"It's extremely busy here so to have them do it here does seem a bit odd" Hernandez
There weren't any reports of injuries, and police haven't said if they'd made any arrests.
"This is a really nice neighborhood over here so that's scary" said Kim Rea
