The credit union that was robbed by a suspect who died moments later on Wednesday will close its doors permanently.

Credit Union of America made the announcement Thursday saying that all services at the branch at 1920 S. Seneca in Wichita will be discontinued, except for the drive-thru ATM.

“Although security measures at our South Seneca office have been increased over the years, the branch continues to be targeted for robbery activity. At the same time, the demand for a full-service branch at this location has decreased as Credit Union of America continues to expand the number of branches throughout the Wichita metro area.” said Bob Thurman, President/CEO.

Wednesday morning, the branch was robbed by a man who battered two employees, then shot himself moments later while running from a Sedgwick County sheriff's deputy. More on that story can be found here.

“The safety of our staff and membership is paramount. We believe it is in their best interest to discontinue all services at our South Seneca location," Thurman said.

Lobby services at the branch had already been discontinued in February.
