Texas bank robber with toy gun slain

A 60-year-old woman dressed in black, armed with a toy gun and driving a motor home robbed a bank in east Texas on Thursday, then led police on a low-speed chase before she was shot and killed when she allegedly pointed her fake revolver at officers.

The woman was identified by Tyler, Texas, police as Peggy Jo Tallas, an ex-convict who became known as 'Cowboy Bob' in 1992 after she pleaded guilty to robbing a bank in Mesquite, Texas, of $13,000 while dressed in a cowboy hat, sunglasses, a fake beard and mustache, and other Western attire.
If ABC doesn't make a TV movie of this, I will.
