Wilson, N.C. — Police in Greenville say they have apprehended a Wilson man wanted for questioning in the deaths of two South Carolina bank employees, according to WITN.
Conway, S.C., police had identified Brandon Michael Council, 32, of Wilson, as a person of interest in the robbery.
Greenville Police Chief Mark Holtzman said someone saw Council driving on South Memorial Drive. An officer pulled the car over, but Council fled on foot. He was caught by officers a short time later, according to Holtzman.
Two people who were with Council at the time have been detained, the chief said.
The CresCom Bank branch at 1230 16th Ave. in Conway was held up Monday afternoon, and two bank employees were killed, police said. The employees were identified as branch manager Kathryn "Katie" Skeen, 36, of Green Sea, S.C., and Donna Major, 59, of Conway.
