Witnesses say at least two people entered the BB&T branch on Spring Lane around 9:45 a.m.
The suspects, two masked black males, were holding handguns and threatened tellers at gunpoint, demanding cash.
Police say one of the robbers fired a round from their handgun during the robbery. The bullet lodged in one of the teller drawers; no one was injured.
The robbers fled the scene, with an undisclosed amount of money, in a green-colored Dodge Caravan which was left abandoned a short distance from the bank. It turns out that the Caravan was taken during a carjacking on October 3 in Cumberland County.
The Cumberland County Sheriff's Office has obtained warrants for those believed to be involved in the carjacking. The warrants are for robbery with a dangerous weapon, felony conspiracy, and larceny of a motor vehicle.
One suspect is Jeffrey Deshae Price, 21, of Fayetteville. Price is described as a black male, who is 5'11" and weights 190 pounds.
TheNorth Carolina Bankers Associationis offering a reward of $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of suspects in the bank robbery.
