A Quartz Hill man who allegedly shot a teller in the shoulder while trying to rob a bank was arrested Friday on suspicion of attempted murder and robbery.
Ryan Layton, 20, was arrested at a nearby carwash shortly after the 9:45 a.m. robbery of Antelope Valley Bank in Quartz Hill. He was held without bail at the Los Angeles County sheriff's Lancaster Station.
Authorities said Layton entered the bank in the 42000 block of 50th Street West wearing a yellow bandanna on his face and brandishing a chrome revolver.
"He jumped over the counter and walked up and down the line of tellers saying, 'Give me all your money. Give me the money,'" FBI spokesperson Cheryl Mimura said. "When he approached the last teller, he shot her in the shoulder area." He then fled empty-handed.
