SOUTHFIELD, Mich. – A 21-year-old Detroit man is facing charges in a series of break-ins at banks after Southfield police said he was shot by officers Saturday morning when he tried to run one of them down with his vehicle.

Alvin Darrell Hall faces two counts of breaking and entering, a felonious assault charge and a fleeing and eluding charge. Southfield police say he is a suspect in up to 15 break-ins at banks since December 2013.

Original story: Officers shoot at bank robber who tried to run them down

On Saturday, officers responded to an alarm about 4:55 a.m. at the Comerica Bank on Telegraph Road at 10 Mile Road after the alarm company saw a man inside the bank taking cash. They confronted the suspect on Berg Road near Oliver Court. Police say that's where Hall rammed his vehicle into two police cars and attempted to run down one of the officers who was on foot. Two officers shot at him, wounding him in the arm.

Hall was arrested near 8 Mile and Lahser roads after he crashed during a pursuit by police. He was treated for non-life-threatening injuries at a nearby hospital and released to police.

He was arraigned Monday and is being held on a $500,000 bond.

One breaking and entering charge is for the Saturday incident and the other is for one on March 11 at the Bank of America in the 23000 block of Telegraph Road in Southfield, according to Southfield police.
