HUMBOLDT, Tenn. — A bank employee was shot during an attempted robbery before 8 a.m. Wednesday morning in Humboldt, according to law enforcement sources. Dominic Shawn Williams, 39, of California, has been arrested and charged in the violent robbery attempt at the BancorpSouth on Main Street, an FBI agent said in an afternoon news conference. Federal charges have been brought against Williams, including attempted bank robbery. He will be tried in Jackson. Close friends have identified the victim as Janeice Frisbee. She was airlifted to Memphis and is expected to survive. “For those of you who don’t believe in miracles, we had one today in our town,” Humboldt Police Chief Rob Ellis said during the news conference. The victim was kidnapped at gunpoint near her home and forced to drive to the bank, according to the FBI. They say she was shot because she was unable to open the bank vault. The bank was surrounded Wednesday morning by FBI agents, Gibson County deputies and Humboldt police officers. Humboldt City Schools were put on lockdown for about an hour following the incident, according to district officials. We will bring you more details as this story develops.
