Four people arrested in connection with a deadly bank robbery in Tulsa

Updated:
Four arrests late Tuesday and early Wednesday morning in connection with a deadly bank shooting in Tulsa.

It started Tuesday night, when officers arrested Jeremy Williams [pictured left]. Tulsa Police took him into custody at a south Tulsa condo, along with a woman believed to be an accessory. Detectives say they believe Williams was the shooter in the bank robbery.

Shortly after midnight, officers arrested Alvin Jordan [pictured right] at the Super 8 Motel at 5700 South 49th West Avenue. Jordan was wanted for a convenience store robbery as was Williams. A woman in the room was questioned, but later released.

Also taken into custody early Wednesday, Christopher Jordan was arrested at a north Tulsa home. Detectives believe he drove the getaway car, but never went into the First Fidelity Bank at 21st and Columbia Tuesday morning.

All four suspects are expected to go before a federal magistrate to face federal charges.

As the investigation into the deadly bank shooting continues, we are learning more about what happened inside the bank.

Surveillance cameras show two masked and hooded men went inside the First Fidelity Bank. They ordered the teller to hand over the money at gunpoint. They then shot the bank president and killed the teller, Amber Rogers. They then turned their gun on a customer.

Another employee escaped before the shooting and called 911, as employees in nearby businesses took cover. Curtis Kretchmar with Patterson Realtors "We all went into the back room and locked the doors. Then a guy from the bank came in and called 911."

The police helicopter was called in along with canine units. The robbers got away leaving detectives to follow up leads.

Looking at the victims, 26 year old Amber Rogers was the teller who handed over the money. She was shot in the aorta and despite efforts to save her; she died at an area hospital.

Bank president Mark Poole is in stable condition. He's an OSU graduate and serves on the board of directors of the Palmer Drug Abuse Program.

The third victim is Howard Smith, a bank customer and longtime Tulsa business owner; he's had S-and-J Oyster Bar for 22 years. We’re told he will survive the attack.

Tulsa Police are finding similarities between this deadly bank robbery and a June 14th robbery. Detectives believe Jeremy Williams was one of two men who went into Ryan's Convenience Store and demanded money from the clerks at gunpoint.

The clerks gave them the money, but one of the robbers shot them anyway. Both clerks were wounded in the leg.
