DELAWARE COUNTY, Ohio – Police have released 911 calls after a man in a pumpkin mask robbed a bank in Delaware County, Ohio.

UPDATE: Police in Ohio pursue man wanted by FBI in Metro Detroit clown-related crimes

The robbery was reported at the Delaware County Bank at 34 Evergreen Avenue.

Witnesses told police a man fired shots at the bank and one person sustained a cut, but there was no money stolen.

"We just got shot at," the man told police in the 911 call. "It was a man, probably about 6 foot 2. He was wearing a Halloween mask. It was a pumpkin mask."

You can listen to the 911 calls below.

The FBI is searching for a man who wore pumpkin and clown masks to commit a strong of robberies across Metro Detroit. A $1,500 reward is being offered in the arrest of Todd Raymond Keith.

Keith is charged with two counts of bank robbery in Ypsilanti. Officials said he robbed the Chase bank on Sept. 30 and the Key bank on Oct. 3. In both robberies, the suspect was disguised with "Halloween type masks" and armed with a weapon.

Keith is also considered a person of interest in two hotel robberies -- the Embassy Suites and Days Inn -- Thursday in Livonia and an armed robbery of a Walgreens pharmacy Tuesday in Brownstown Township. He is also a person of interest in a carjacking of a black Lexus in Madison Heights.

Witnesses in Delaware County told police the pumpkin-masked man pointed a gun toward the bank door and, when employees didn't open the door, fired a shot.

Witnesses said the man drove away in a "dark-colored compact car."

A woman asked Delaware County police to send a medic because a person was "hit with glass from the door."

"We didn't give him anything," the woman said. "Not a thing. He shot through the door."

Keith is considered armed and dangerous, police said.
