NOW: Robbery suspect shot by police, pronounced dead

ELKHART, Ind. – The bank robbery suspect who was shot by police Thursday afternoon has been pronounced dead, according to Elkhart County Prosecutor Vicki Becker.

Police were dispatched to The First Source Bank on East Bristol Street around 3:30 p.m. where the suspect vehicle was located and a pursuit began.

Officials say the chase ended near the intersection of 6th Street and Wolf Avenue near the south side of the city.

The three suspects in the vehicle fled on foot. Two of them were detained by police while the third suspect, 30-year-old Corey Bailey of Elkhart, pointed a handgun at another motorist in the area and was shot by police.

The officers involved in the shooting were Officer Daniel Mayer and Jared Davies of the Elkhart Police Department.

Bailey was shot multiple times. CPR was performed by Mayer and Davies but he was pronounced dead at Elkhart General Hospital.

According to a press release, the other two suspects were 28-year-old Devoris James of South Bend and 29-year-old Marshall Love of Elkhart.

The three men were the only ones accused of the robbery.

Love is charged with two counts of armed robbery and resisting law enforcement in a vehicle.

ABC57 News did some digging. 

According to court documents, Love was charged with two different armed robberies, back in 2005 and  2006. 

Those documents show he was found guilty.

He actually had a warrant out for his arrest for probation violation in October of this year.  

James is charged with resisting law enforcement, and fleeing after being ordered to stop. 

He's also accused of driving while suspended.

Records show that he's been accused of driving without a license, at least three other times, dating back to 2012.

Bailey's been accused at least three times for armed robbery, as early as 2005 and as recent as 2009.

He also was charged with dealing drugs in 2005. 

Love is scheduled for court, the morning of January 4th. 

It does not appear James has a court appearance scheduled yet.
