On Friday, December 28th, 2012, Eric Roberts walked into the Capitol City Bank in Stone Mountain, Georgia. Roberts made a grave mistake that day when he pulled out a gun and tried to rob the bank.
Adrion Bell, who happens to be a deputy for the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office, advised Roberts not to rob the bank and put his weapon down. Roberts instead made Sergeant Bell feel threatened, so Bell shot the robber once.
Roberts ran and jumped through a window in an attempt to get away. Deputy Bell stood over him until police arrived. Bell was not on duty and was not in uniform.
Roberts died despite being rushed to a hospital.
