Bank robber shot mid-heist sues county

“Interrupted mid-robbery, [serial bank robber Todd Kirkpatrick] ran from a Snohomish County sheriff’s deputy. In his attempt to escape, Kirkpatrick leveled his gun at the deputy, who shot him twice.
Now Kirkpatrick, an inmate at Clallam Bay Corrections Center, wants Snohomish County to pay him $6.3 million for his troubles.” [Everett, Wash. Herald]
