The suspect, who has not been identified, robbed a Wells Fargo bank at 375 N. Highway 67 just after 4 p.m. Responding officers caught the suspect driving and gave chase.

The suspect then stopped the vehicle and tried to flee on foot. He turned toward the officer with a knife, and was shot and killed, said Cedar Hill Police Department spokesman Corky Brown.

No one else was injured in the robbery or chase, Brown added.
