The getaway driver of a brazen armed robbery got more than he bargained for when he set out to rob a bank customer this morning. 

Police say  that a customer was about to enter the  Royal Bank of Canada  Prince Charles Branch after 11:00am when a man robbed him of several deposit bags before jumping into a Toyota Passo with another man. 

As the two were attempting to leave the scene, officers from the Bahamas Department of corrections confronted them.

The  driver of the Passo reportedly   attempted to hit the officers with the vehicle, and in fear of his life, one of the officers pulled out his service weapon and fired in the direction of the suspect, hitting him. 

His accomplice, however, escaped into a nearby residential area. 

At last report, the injured man was in stable condition under heavy police guard. 

Meantime, several deposit bags were recovered and investigations into the matter are ongoing.
