FATAL SHOOTING: Man killed by police, FBI in Yonkers

ROBBERY: Tarrytown bank robbed

Authorities believe the suspect had robbed a Chase Bank on South Broadway in Tarrytown on Nov. 13 and another Chase branch on Saw Mill River Road in the North Elmsford section of Greenburgh on Dec. 7. 

In both robberies, the suspect brandished a handgun and left after the teller turned over money. 

It was unclear whether authorities had Campbell’s identity at the time of the shooting. But police and FBI agents in Yonkers had a car under surveillance that they believed was involved in the Tarrytown robbery, one of the sources told the newspaper. 

Yonkers police have referred all questions to the FBI. The FBI has not responded to questions since issuing a short statement on Twitter Friday night. The post said only that the shooting occurred while the agent and the officer were “conducting law enforcement activity.”

The Westchester District Attorney’s Office has notified the state Attorney General’s Office about the case and will discuss it with them on Wednesday, First Deputy District Attorney Paul Noto said. Other than confirming that the man killed was a suspect, Noto would not discuss the case further.

A 2015 executive order by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo authorized the attorney general to investigate deadly confrontations between police and unarmed civilians.
