SCOTTSDALE, AZ (CBS5) -

Scottsdale police said an armed suspect bound four people inside a bank before he was captured in the bank parking lot Tuesday morning.

The suspect, wearing a wide-brimmed hat, black mask and gloves and carrying a handgun, went into the Chase Bank at 11355 E. Via Linda Rd. about 8 a.m. as the bank opened, Scottsdale police Officer David Pubins said.

The 46-year-old suspect fired a round into the ceiling, held employees at gunpoint and started to take what cash he could find, Pubins said.

A bank alarm was activated while he was taking the cash and officers were en route immediately, Pubins said.

He then tied up three employees and started to leave the bank when a customer walked in. He bound the customer as well, got in a white SUV and started to leave the parking lot about 8:20 a.m. before Scottsdale officers with guns drawn converged on him and took him into custody.

A nearby school was placed on lockdown as a precaution, Pubins said.

No one was injured, Pubins said.
