TAMPA -- The video is terrifying.  A woman pulls into a Hillsborough County bank depository and is robbed and shot.

It happened on Wednesday night at the Wells Fargo Bank on Kings Avenue South in Brandon.  As soon as the woman drove into the deposit lane, a man wearing a dark hoodie and armed with a 9mm pistol approached her car.  

The man apparently yelled at her, demanding money and tried to open the car door.  She locked it and that’s when the suspect shot  into the driver’s side rear window.

He shot a second time, this time in the driver’s window  hitting the woman in the leg.  The suspect then grabbed the deposit bag from inside the car and ran away.

The woman was taken to Tampa General Hospital for treatment.  He injury is not life-threatening.
