PORT RICHMOND - May 3, 2008 (WPVI) -- A gunman shot and killed a police officer during a bank robbery this morning.

According to Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey, at least two armed men robbed the Bank of America branch inside the Shop Rite located at 3547 Aramingo Avenue around 11:26 a.m. Ramsey says there may have been a third suspect involved in the hold up.
The suspects fled in a vehicle described as a black or blue Jeep.

An officer, identified as 39-year-old Sergeant Stephen Liczbinski from the 24th District, encountered the vehicle in the 2500 block of E. Schiller Street. At least one of the suspects drew an assault-type weapon and fired shots at Liczbinski, fatally wounding the officer.
Sgt. Liczbinski was shot three times, suffering wounds to the face and abdomen. He was rushed to Northeast Hospital then transferred to Temple University Hospital, where he later died.

One suspect was shot in the 500 block of E. Louden Street and later died at Einstein Medical Center.

The second suspect, and a possible third, are still at large. Police are conducting an extensive search for the suspects and interviewing possible witnesses.
The suspects are described as follows:

Suspect 1
-A tall black male with a medium build
-During the robbery he wore sunglasses, female Muslim garb
-Carried a shoulder-type bag

Suspect 2
-Possibly a female, standing 5'6"-5'7"
-Wearing light brown Muslim garb
-Her race has not been determined

Suspect 3
-Male with a stock build, standing 6'2"-6'3"
-Medium brown complexion
-Shoulder-length dreadlocks - might be a wig
-Wearing a white hospital or construction-type mask
-Wearing blue jeans and light-colored shirt, possibly flannel
Sergeant Liczbinski, a 12-year veteran of the department, was recently promoted to the rank of sergeant. He would have celebrated his 40th birthday this coming Tuesday, May 6th. Liczbinski is survived by his wife Michele, sons Matt and Stephen, and daughter Amber.

This is very sad. I think he had three kids. They killed one suspect, have one in custody and have named the third suspect. They'll get him. This is the bank I usually go to. Its walking distance from my house.
