Chief: Police killed California robbery hostage story image

STOCKTON, Calif. (AP) - Police say the hostage who died during a bank robbery and chase in Northern California was killed by police, not the suspects.

Stockton Police Chief Eric Jones said Monday that the results of a preliminary ballistics report show that Stockton police fired the bullet or bullets that killed 41-year-old Misty Holt-Singh.

Holt-Singh was found dead at the end of last month's bank robbery and chase, which included a running gunbattle between the three suspects and police before a final shootout.

Police have said the sole surviving suspect, 19-year-old Jaime Ramos, used Holt-Singh as a human shield, but they could not immediately tell whether she died from police gunfire or shots fired by the suspects.

They also did not know when she was killed.
