Cohn and Walls are not facing weapons charges in this case yet, though police say they were both armed with guns when they allegedly robbed the M&T Bank on Route 4 in North Greenbush.

North Greenbush Police Chief David Keevern said shots were fired when Cohn and Walls were leaving the bank with the stolen money. One of those bullets grazed a teller's arm. She was treated on scene and released.

Meanwhile, state police say they arrested a fourth person as a result of the investigation. They say 25-year-old Ahlam Talbi was in possession of stolen property and a controlled substance.

Authorities aren't saying if she played a role in the robbery or had any knowledge of it.

She's now in the county jail.
