FORT WAYNE, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) - A large reward is now being offered for information that could lead to the arrest of those responsible for robbing the ProFed Credit Union on Stellhorn Thursday morning.

The FBI made the afternoon announcement in a press release stating a reward of up to $5,000.

Police say at just after 8 a.m., three male suspects forced a credit union employee inside the branch around opening time. The suspects fired shots inside the credit union, tied the employee and two others up and battered them.

A customer waiting for the credit union to open may have shortened the robbery. Police say the customer called 911, and provided information on the suspects as they fled.

Police say all three suspects fled on foot in the same direction, and remain at-large.

Fort Wayne Community Schools placed Snider High School and Jefferson Middle School on lockdown shortly after the robbery. The lockdowns have since been lifted. Extra personnel helped as students arrived at other schools in the area, school district officials say.
