COLUMBIA - Hospital officals discharged Landmark Bank suspect, Edward Prince Roberts, from University Hospital Tuesday. Roberts was shot during a police pursuit in Cooper County.

Police say the Landmark Bank off of Nifong Boulevard near the intersection with Providence Road was robbed around 10 am Tuesday.
