DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – This mornings bank robbery at the Bank of Texas at Live Oak and Peak was the second time that branch has been hit in about a month… but it’s only one of seven bank robberies tied to a couple of serial bank robbers.

The Dallas FBI Violent Crimes Task Force is seeking the public’s help in identifying the men wanted in connection to up to seven bank robberies since mid-December.

The armed men hit the Bank of Texas at Peak and Live Oak today. Police are especially concerned after the men fired their weapons inside the bank today and during their last robbery, too.

“We are concerned now that they are firing their weapons,” said Deputy Chief of the Crimes Against Person Division, Thomas Castro.
