ALOHA, OR (KPTV) -

An officer-involved shooting was connected to a bank robbery in Aloha. 

Washington County deputies responded to the U.S. Bank at Southwest 185th Avenue and Farmington Road at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Investigators said the suspect was armed with a gun, wore a welding mask and left the scene in a vehicle.

Officers and a K-9 team searched the area, but the suspect was not located.

The suspect was described as a thin white man in his 20s. The suspect was wearing blue shorts.

On Wednesday afternoon, a Portland Police Bureau officer shot a suspect who crashed a stolen SUV that was connected to the bank robbery, according to investigators. 

The suspect's name has not been released. He sustained injuries not believed to be life-threatening.
