Tired robbery suspect says, ‘Just shoot me’

SHARE Tired robbery suspect says, ‘Just shoot me’

BRANCHBURG, N.J. (AP) — When a third suspect was caught Friday in the bank robbery that led to the fatal shooting of an FBI agent, he had a request for officers: "Just shoot me."

Francisco Herrera-Genao, 22, was tired and cold, half-naked, and caked with mud and twigs after a night in the woods. He was arrested after trying to carjack a woman driving to work, authorities said.

Genao had managed to elude a 300-officer manhunt for almost a day after gunfire erupted outside a bank that authorities suspected was about to be robbed in Readington, in north-central New Jersey.
