Police open fire on would-be robbers

        Cincinnati police fired at two robbery suspects Thursday night after they tried to rob an officer on undercover duty at an automated teller machine in Mount Auburn.

        No one was injured in the incident, said Sgt. Lisa Thomas.

        One suspect was captured after a brief foot chase; another escaped into a nearby park and remained at large early today.

        Sgt. Thomas said the female undercover officer was acting as a decoy at an ATM at Cinco Financial Group at 49 William Howard Taft Road because of ATM robberies reported in the area.

        When the two suspects tried to rob her, nearby police officers who were staking out the site closed in.

        Officers fired two shots at the suspects — at least one of whom was armed.

        A weapon thought used in the robbery attempt was recovered later nearby.
