FORT WORTH, Texas — Authorities reportedly questioned three men in what federal agents say was a robbery attempt that turned into a shooting at a Fort Worth bank on Thursday morning.

Fort Worth police Sgt. Chris Britt said at least two men went into the Veritex Bank at 2424 Merrick Street at 9:20 a.m. and opened fire.

Britt said three women employees were shot and are hospitalized with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

FBI Special Agent in Charge Eric Jackson said the incident is still under investigation. It wasn’t immediately clear if the shooters got away with any money.

Police reportedly handed control of the investigation over to the FBI just before noon. About that time, officers reportedly surrounded a home in the 5700 block of Blackmore Avenue on a tip that a vehicle involved in the robbery had driven there.

Britt said three men were arrested outside the house but he couldn’t confirm if they were involved in the robbery. They were questioned. A fourth man was arrested on an unrelated warrant.

The block was closed while the investigation unfolded. Police reportedly confirmed at around 2:30 p.m. that no one else was inside the house and minimized their presence in the neighborhood.

When asked if police are looking for other suspects, Jackson again said the investigation is ongoing.

Britt said police don’t know if there were any customers in the bank when the shooting occurred. He reportedly asked for anyone with information to call 911.

Authorities are also looking for anyone who may have been around the bank at the time of the robbery and possibly saw something suspicious.
