Two bank employees were injured Thursday when three men robbed a bank in Lansing.

The men entered the U.S. Bank branch at 17150 S. Torrence Ave. about 1 p.m. and announced a robbery, FBI spokeswoman Joan Hyde said.

At least one of the three men had a handgun and went to the teller counter to confront the bank’s employees, Hyde said. There were no reports of shots fired.

Two bank employees were injured during the robbery, Hyde said. Information on their conditions was not immediately available.

The robbers, all about 5-foot-7 to 5-8, all wore hooded sweatshirts and covered their lower faces with bandanas or scarves, Hyde said.

Anyone with information about the robbery should call the FBI at (312) 421-6700.
