Shot Kills ‘Grandma Bandit’ Suspect

According to local authorities, a robbery suspect nicknamed the “Grandma Bandit” died in a shootout Friday in Atlanta, Georgia. It was not immediately known whether her fatal gunshot wounds were self-inflicted or caused by police.

From CNN:

Police had issued an arrest warrant on Thursday for the woman, 58-year-old Roxanne Taylor, charging her with three robberies.

The “Grandma Bandit” gained notoriety because of her age and signature robbing style — approaching cashiers at Atlanta-area CVS and Rite-Aid pharmacies and demanding cash after producing a revolver from her purse.

She was a distinctive-looking woman with swollen cheeks who wore oversize, dark sunglasses and a baseball cap, according to surveillance video and witness accounts.
