Going Out In Very A Dramatic Kodak Moment!

Normal, IL--A suspected bank robber led police on a wild vehicular chase and bailed out with gun in hand on Interstate 55 and I-74. An AP photographer got these news photos of a lifetime snapping away as police opened fire on Robert Sylvester, 57.
The deadly drama came to a climax as Sylvester was being chased by police after an armed robbery of a Bloomington currency exchange. Officers opened fire on Sylvester who had begun an armed assault once the chase ended. Sylvester is also suspected of at least four bank robberies. Sylvester later died from his wounds at a local hospital.
One more bedtime story with a happy ending!
