COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -  Columbus Police are investigating an attempted robbery turned shooting in south Columbus.

It happened Thursday night at the Bank of America on South Lumpkin Road.

Police say the victim pulled into the bank and was sitting in his car with his window down, getting ready to use the ATM.

When he looked up, he tells police a gun was being pointed in his face.

Since his car was still running, he tried to drive away and the suspect fired one shot at his car.

Officers say the bullet did hit the car but missed the driver.
