Bank robbery suspect turns himself in

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  Albany Police say Lashawn Moore turned himself in Monday afternoon.

 Moore is wanted for robbing the PeopleSouth Bank on North Westover Boulevard on Wednesday and with shooting his girlfriend Krystal Jackson the day before.

 Jackson was not treated for the wound until the following day when an unidentified person called 911 just moments after the bank robbery.

here is a transcript of that 9-1-1 call.

Albany 9-1-1, what is your emergency?

Caller-Yes, I need an ambulance at 409 Bennington Lane.  Someone's been shot.

9-1-1-  O.K., what's the location again, sir?

Caller-409 Bennington Lane.

9-1-1  409 Bennington?

Caller-  Bennington Lane. 409 Bennington Lane.  And the door is open.

9-1-1  O.K. Sir, who did the shooting?   Do you know?

Caller-Just go help her.

9-1-1 O.K. Sir.  I need more information than that Sir.  Do you know who was shot, Sir?

9-1-1 Hello?  Hello?

Albany Police responded Wednesday to 409 Bennington, and found 30 year-old Krystal Jackson on the floor, shot at least twice.  Police say Jackson had been shot around 11 Tuesday morning, and did not know if she had been shot at that house or another location.

About the same time, this man walked into the PeopleSouth Bank on Westover Boulevard and demanded money.  He drove away in a dark gray Nissan Altima.  Police identified the suspect as 35 year old LaShawn Moore. He turned himself in late today.  Moore and Jackson have a child together, and neighbors say they lived at the Bennington Lane home for a short time.

Jackson was released from the hospital the following day.  No one was at that home today. 

That calm 9-1-1 call a chilling part of these crimes.

  We know that the FBI is also involved in this bank robbery investigation. We talked with PeopleSouth Bank officials today, and they said everything was back to normal at their branch.
