The suspect was described as having blood on his clothing -- but officials said those injuries were self-inflicted -- a result of an earlier domestic incident, police said.

Greendale police say after the attempted bank robbery, Greendale officers responded to two reports of attempted carjackings at Southridge Mall. Prior to officers' arrival at the mall, the suspect fled in his own vehicle. He was last seen heading northbound on S. 76th Street.

Witnesses were able to obtain a vehicle description and license plate number.

In the attempted carjackings, Greendale police say the suspect never displayed a weapon, and no one was hurt. The suspect wasn't able to get away with the victims' vehicles.

"The suspect involved matched the descriptions of some incidents previously being reported in Waukesha County," Greenfield Police Captain Ryan Rosenow said.

Greendale police say the suspect vehicle description, the license plate number and the suspect description was the same as it was following the attempted bank robbery in Brookfield, and a domestic incident in Waukesha County in which the suspect suffered self-inflicted wounds.

After fleeing the scene of the attempted carjackings in Greendale, police say the suspect and vehicle were observed at a gas station in Oak Creek, where the suspect committed a theft.

Store employees contacted police, and officers located the suspect vehicle and attempted to stop it.

Officers from the Oak Creek and Franklin Police Departments were pursuing the vehicle northbound on Loomis Road when the vehicle left the roadway and struck the concrete pillar.

The driver was pronounced dead at the scene. He was the only occupant of the vehicle.

"It was not a PIT (maneuver) or stop strips. The vehicle left the roadway and crashed into the pillar. The vehicle was on fire for a small time, but it was not fully engulfed," Rosenow said.

Officials closed down Highway 36/Loomis Road during this investigation. The mangled vehicle was towed away just before 3:00 p.m.

The driver/suspect hasn't been identified.

      agreed, maybe old blue jeans…..

      They can not give a name until the police give one, this tard could have stole the car and the news would be giving the name of the owner of the car not the idiot that took it and robbed a bank. I am pretty sure they wait to try to give the correct info when it comes to names, or try to.

    Based on the updated story that the guy is dead – it’s really too bad. Someone shouldn’t get the death penalty for robbing a bank, oh wait, I just noticed that he was smoking indoors -the liberals won’t have a problem with it now. Glad he didn’t take anyone else out in the pursuit and that it ended with clear resolution.

    Self inflicted death penalty? Can’t get any better. Life is good. White, Black, brown? We all have the scum.

    libertarian go ahead and blame the police for some dumb ass robber. You want them to turn their head and lrt him go. It was across the street from my house and I am glad they got him stopped
