2 suspects in Iowa bank robbery in custody

Posted: Updated:

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - Two suspects in a bank robbery who officials say shot and wounded two officers during a high-speed chase are in custody.

Iowa State Patrol spokesman Sgt. Scott Bright says the two men were "cornered and gave up" Tuesday evening, about seven hours after the Maynard Savings Bank in Maynard was robbed.

Police set up a perimeter around a two-mile radius of a wooded area by a rock quarry near Frederika.

Trooper Bob Conrad says the two suspects were trying to crawl out of the area when they were captured. Their names were not immediately released.

Trooper Mark Domino was shot in the upper right arm. He was treated and released. Sumner Police Chief Dennis Cain was shot in the neck, the hand area and the thumb. He was in critical condition and undergoing surgery
