GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - Gulfport Police say they have a suspected bank robber and his partner in custody, along with the gun fired inside the bank and the money stolen. Samuel D'Neal Goodwin, 21, of Wiggins and Marcus Bernard Anderson of Gulfport are both charged with Armed Robbery.

According to police, Anderson dropped Goodwin off at the Hancock Bank on Pass Road around 10:40am. They said Goodwin then walked into the bank, fired two shots into the air and demanded money. Witnesses said the robber grabbed the money and took off.

Workers and customers were inside during the hold-up, but no one was hurt. 

"They appear to be doing okay, but anytime you got shots fired inside a business, it's gonna shake you up," Chief Alan Weatherford said.

After talking with witnesses and investigating the scene, police headed toward the 2600 block of 17th Avenue looking for the two men.  K-9 units were also involved in the search.

When they got to the area, they found a jeep matching the description from the bank.  It was parked with no one was inside.

It wasn't long before police located the two men, first the suspected robber, Goodwin, then Anderson.  In that same area, investigators found a gun and money.

"Biloxi Police assisted us with a K-9 unit, ours with theirs," Chief Weatherford said. "Everybody worked together is what brought these two people into custody."
