KANSAS CITY (AP) - Authorities say Kansas City police have shot and critically wounded a bank robbery suspect.

The Kansas City Star reports that the shooting happened Friday afternoon after two officers saw a person matching the bank robber's description attempt an armed carjacking. Police said in a news release that the suspect pointed a weapon at officers and that the officers shot the suspect.

The shooting occurred shortly after a 4:10 p.m. robbery at a Commerce Bank branch in the city's downtown.

FBI spokeswoman Bridget Patton said in a statement that the robber entered the bank carrying a black duffel bag and demanded cash while threatening to detonate an explosive device. Patton says the robber fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Police say that the wounded man had a black bag.
