On 08/31/2011 at 10:07 am, a suspect entered the Bank of America lobby located at 3523 S. Lancaster Road and forced his way into the secure teller area. All of the bank employees fled the location and the bank’s armed security guard, Lionel Newell B/M/55, entered the bank and confronted the suspect.

The suspect and Newell engaged in a physical struggle during which time the suspect took Newell’s gun and shot him with it. The suspect fled the location on foot with Newell’s gun to the 1800 block of Overton where he encountered two men working on a church building.

The suspect demanded a vehicle from the men.  Officers spotted the suspect as he tried to start the vehicle and the suspect was taken into custody. Newell died from the gunshot wounds and the suspect was transported to jail. Dallas PD is taking the lead and the FBI is assisting in this investigation. Detectives are preparing a Capital Murder warrant on the suspect.
