An accused head of a stick-up crew that robbed small restaurants and banks at gunpoint was found guilty today by a federal jury in Chicago of fatally shooting a bank teller during a 2007 holdup of a South Side bank.
David Vance gunned down teller Tramaine Gibson, 23, after he was unable to open a vault during the robbery at the Illinois Service Federal Savings and Loan in Chatham in May 2007. Two accomplices engaged in a shootout with a security guard, wounding him and an elderly customer in the bank.
The government presented DNA evidence, videotape surveillance of the robbery and eyewitnesses to the holdup.
Vance's co-defendant, Alton Marshall, who pleaded guilty to avert the death penalty, testified for the prosecution, identifying Vance as an accomplice.
