Autopsy: Self-Inflicted Wound Killed Bank Robber

An autopsy has determined that an armed bandit wounded during a botched bank robbery in Edison died from a self-inflicted wound he sustained as police tried to arrest him.

Middlesex County authorities announced the findings Thursday, a day after 47-year-old Marck S. McMurry of Keansburg tried to rob the PNC Bank in Edison.

After McMurry demanded money from a teller, an armored car company employee who was inside the bank shot McMurry three times, hitting him in the neck, back and arm.

McMurry then fled the bank and ran through a nearby supermarket before ending up in a field, where he was approached by three Edison police officers. McMurry then shot himself and later died at a nearby hospital.

Officials have said the officers didn’t discharge their weapons.
