BELLEVUE, Wash. (AP) _ Police shot and killed a bank robbery suspect in the crowded cafe of a department store Tuesday.

The suspect was seen changing clothes in the cafe restroom in the Nordstrom store before taking a seat in the restaurant, said Marcia Harnden, a police spokeswoman in this Seattle suburb.

When police arrived, the man, said to be in his early 20s, ran toward the restroom hallway and pulled a gun, Harnden said. Police fired four shots, the spokeswoman said.

The nearby Bank of America branch had been robbed about an hour before.
