2 Iowa officers shot following bank robbery

A day long man-hunt for robbers involved more than 30 officers

By PoliceOne Staff

MAYNARD, Iowa — Two suspects were arrested after two officers were shot following a bank robbery Tuesday morning. 

Sumner Police Chief Dennis Cain and Iowa State Patrol trooper Mark Domino were shot by the suspects as they were fleeing Maynard Savings Bank.

A day-long manhunt including local and federal agencies ended just before 7 p.m. Tuesday when two suspects were taken into custody.

Cain — struck in the neck, hand and thumb by rifle shots — was downgraded from life-threatening condition to critical condition Tuesday night after undergoing surgery. Domino — struck in the right bicep — was treated and released.

“They were arrested without incident, no shots fired,” Iowa State Patrol spokesman Bob ConradConrad told Kcrg.com after the suspects were detained. “That’s a good outcome compared with the way things looked earlier today."

The robbery took place about 11:15 a.m., according to Jessica Lown, spokeswoman for the Iowa Department of Public Safety.

No shots were fired at the bank and no one else was injured.
