EUFAULA, OK -- The FBI says two people have been shot to death, including a bank employee, during a bank robbery in eastern Oklahoma.

FBI spokesman Terry Weber told The Oklahoman that a bank employee was killed during the robbery Thursday morning at the Bank of Eufaula, about 125 miles east of Oklahoma City.

Weber says one of two suspects was shot dead after leading police on a car chase through McIntosh County. Weber said a second suspect was also shot and taken to a Tulsa hospital.

Weber did not immediately return phone calls to The Associated Press.

He said both suspects were armed when they entered the bank at 10 a.m.
