Cincinnati police shot a suspected bank robber to death Friday morning as the 23-year-old man fled a University of Cincinnati credit union and threw a piece of concrete at an officer, authorities said.

Police say Randy Black walked into Cinco Credit Union in UC's Tangeman University Center just after the credit union opened at 8:30 a.m.

He threatened the lives of employees, indicating he had a weapon, and demanded money, Cincinnati Police Lt. Col. Richard Biehl said. But the suspect ran off without the cash.

With security guards, construction workers and campus and city police on his trail, Mr. Black fled through busy streets south of the university, police said.
