Bank Robbery Suspect Killed In NC Standoff Had 14 Gunshot Wounds

CARY, N.C. (AP) -- A 19-year-old who took hostages at a Cary bank suffered 14 gunshot wounds when he died in a hail of bullets.

An autopsy report released Thursday by the state Office of the Chief Medical Examiner found that Devon Mitchell suffered head wounds and multiple shots to the chest and arms. Five different police officers fired their weapons during the standoff on Feb. 10.

That day, Mitchell entered the bank and said he had a gun. He took seven hostages during the course of the three-hour standoff, but let most of them go before trying to leave the bank.

He was shot after holding what appeared to be a gun to a woman's head. Police said later that Mitchell was unarmed.
