Federal agents shot a Muslim imam 21 times and then handcuffed him during an October FBI raid in Dearborn, a Detroit suburb, a yet to be released autopsy report concluded, according to the Detroit Free Press.

Free Press reporter  Ben Schmitt, who attributed the information to a “person familiar with the case”, also wrote that the source said the handcuffing “was in line with procedure.”

Luqman Ameen Abdullah, the Detroit imam, was shot and killed Oct. 28 at a Dearborn warehouse during a shoot out with agents, who had come to arrest him and ten others for allegedly dealing in stolen property, the paper reported.

Six bank robberies and five months later, the FBI in San Diego is still hunting for a mystery man in his 60s or 70s who’s been famously dubbed the “Geezer Bandit.”

His latest stickup came on Wednesday at the San Diego National Bank around 5:50 p.m. According to the FBI, the notorious robber was armed with a silver and black semiautomatic pistol when he handed the teller a demand note.

He walked off with an undisclosed amount of money.

Rail-thin, clad in a baseball cap and brandishing a gun, the man held up his first bank in San Diego County on Aug. 28. Up until mid-November, he had been robbing a new bank in San Diego County every two to four weeks, authorities said.

But this time, he waited about two and a half months before pulling off another robbery. His last heist had been Nov. 16 at a Bank of America branch.
