Police: Man with Gun at Bank Actually Planned Carjacking

What people thought was a bank robbery turned out to be what police call an attempted carjacking. Just before noon yesterday, a man with a gun walked into the SunTrust bank branch on Wilmington Island, and people inside assumed he was there to rob them.

Savannah-Chatham police officers were right outside and came in and confronted the man.

He's identified as Aldridge Walker, 19. Investigators say he was planning to carjack a Mustang in the parking lot, but he saw police and ran into the bank to get away.

He's being charged with carrying a concealed weapon and conspiracy to commit robbery.
