Extreme footage: Bank guard shoots down robber.

This is recently released GRAPHIC footage from a bank robbery in Rockford, Illinois. 

The guard and robber exchanged gunfire, and by the time the robber reached the door, he was down. 

He was later prounounced dead at the scene, and the guard (a 30-year force veteran) was ruled acting justifiably and in defense of innocent lives. 

It's graphic to watch, but it tells a story that's more important, in my opinion...it tells a story of lives being saved.

Below is the clip, and here's the latest from CBSDFW:
