NEWARK, N.J. — An unidentified man who used threatening notes to rob two banks yesterday in Atlantic County for about $5,000 was shot and killed by police while fleeing from his second heist, authorities said.

The suspect, believed to be in his 20s, was spotted by Hamilton Township police yesterday afternoon driving an Acura sport vehicle minutes after the second holdup, about 2:30 p.m., said Atlantic County Prosecutor Jeffrey Blitz.

|The suspect had walked out of a Bank of America in Mays Landing with less than $3,000 after handing a teller a note that read: "This a bank robbery. Don't do anything stupid."
