-- A man dubbed the "AK-47 Bandit," who the FBI says shot a police officer after robbing a bank three years ago, has struck again.
The FBI released photos of the man robbing a credit union in Mason City, Iowa, on Tuesday. Armed with his signature AK-47, the man drove off with an undisclosed amount of cash and left behind a device that the bomb squad later said was safe.
The FBI said the man shot and wounded an officer in Chino, California, in 2012 following a bank robbery. He has been linked to four other bank robberies across several states.
