An off-duty police officer shot and killed a male attempting to rob a credit union this morning, police said.

The incident started about 10:10 a.m., at a Chartway Federal Credit Union in the 5000 block of Ferrell Parkway, near the intersection of Indian Lakes Boulevard. A male wearing a mask and dark clothes entered the credit union and announced the robbery, said Sgt. Adam Bernstein, a police spokesman. The robber appeared to be armed.

The off-duty officer was one of the customers in the credit union. He confronted the robber, then fired at least one shot, Bernstein said.

The robber was pronounced dead at the scene, Bernstein said. Police have not yet released his identity.

Bernstein would not say what city or agency the officer works for.

No one else was injured in the incident.

Cool! I always get disappointed when the thug is recovering in a hospital, or shot in the leg or whatever.
Shot dead is the only happy ending.

I had the same reaction.. What a happy ending!!

That guy won’t cause any more trouble will he??

It was not his lucky day. Tough luck, that he tries to rob a place where an off duty cop just happens to be a customer.

Nice ending!!!

Well done. Noir state’s taxpayers won’t have to deal with the care and feeding of at least one perp.

Whenever I see “The victim was rushed to the hospital...” first thought is ``waddyamean “victim”’’ and the second is “rushed”?? Take the scenic route, dammit! Go around the lake, see the sights, it’s been a long day; stop for coffee. “Rush” indeed (upsidedown ! — called a blase’ mark)

Off duty cop works for Portsmouth PD. Still no ID on perp.

Suspected robber shot, killed in Virginia Beach by off-duty Portsmouth officer

VIRGINIA BEACH -- Police said a bank robbery ended Saturday morning when an off-duty Portsmouth officer shot and killed the robber. It happened a little after 10 a.m. at Chartway Federal Credit Union, located at 5004 Ferrell Parkway near Indian Lakes Boulevard.

Witnesses told officers masked man walked into the business and said he was robbing the credit union. He appeared to have a weapon of some sort on him.

Sergeant Adam Bernstein said one of the customers was an off-duty police officer from an agency other than Virginia Beach Police Department.

"He, then, confronted the robbery suspect, made the announcement that he was a police officer," explained Bernstein. "The suspect then turned towards him, at which point the suspect was shot once." The alleged robber died there. No one else inside the credit union was hurt.

"Deadly force is something that we never want to use, but it's something that we know that every day that we get up, and put on the uniform, and go to work -- or in this case, every day that we leave the house as a police officer -- if we get confronted with one of these situations where it's a violent felony in progress, you know, we're forced to intervene," Bernstein told 13News Now. "In this particular case, the officer was forced to intervene and use deadly force."

Virginia Beach Police Department will work with the Virginia Beach Commonwealth's Attorney's Office on the criminal investigation.

Portsmouth Police Department will conduct an administrative investigation into the officer’s involvement in the shooting, and he is on administrative leave for the time being. Both are part of the department's standard procedures when an incident like this takes place.

Police have not identified the suspect and are not confirming if he was armed.
