Police say Jeffrey Lenington of Choctaw, OK, walked in to the Bank Of America on Central and Woodlawn around 4 p.m. Monday. He told the teller to "give me money or I'll blow my brains out."

He got away with about $1600 dollars. Police caught up to him in front of Washington Elementary School. As officers approached his car, Lenington shot and killed himself. Washington Elementary officials say at least one student saw the whole thing happen. Counselors will now be on hand at the school for the next few days.

FBI Agents say Lenington robbed the same Bank of America back in October. He got away with about a thousand dollars then. Now agents are checking to see if he might be linked to any other bank robberies in Kansas or Oklahoma.
