Police Officer Bryan Hurst was shot and killed during the robbery of a bank on East Broad Street.

Officer Hurst was working special duty inside the bank when a man entered, announced a robbery, and then immediately opened fire on him. One of the rounds struck Officer Hurst in the upper chest area, just above his vest.

Despite being mortally wounded, Officer Hurst was able to return fire and wound the suspect in the chest. The wound prevented the suspect from obtaining any money or injuring anyone else.

The suspect fled but was apprehended three days later. He was charged murder and three counts of bank robbery. He was convicted of murdering Officer Hurst with intent shot and subsequently sentenced to death sentence.

Officer Hurst had served with the Columbus Division of Police for eight years. He is survived by his wife and 6-month-old daughter.
