Dallas police say a bank robbery suspect has been caught after a security guard was disarmed and shot with his own gun.

Lt. Scott Walton says the shooting took place Wednesday morning at a Bank of America branch as the suspect struggled with the guard.

Walton says the suspect then ran from the scene and confronted two people, demanding the keys to a vehicle. Officers arrived and arrested the suspect before he could drive away.

The guard has been transported to a Dallas hospital. Walton had no immediate information on his condition. The guard's name has not been released.

Police did not immediately provide further details.
