Frightened patrons and employees were ordered to the floor during an armed takeover Tuesday of the PNC Bank in Greenfield.

No shots were fired and there were no injuries when two robbers — one of them armed with a shotgun — entered the bank shortly before 1 p.m., Pittsburgh police Sgt. Lavonnie Bickerstaff said.

The gunman racked the shotgun — pumping a cartridge into the chamber — while the other man vaulted the counter and grabbed cash from the tellers' drawers, Bickerstaff said. The men, whose faces were covered, then fled the bank located at the corner of Murray Avenue and Loretta Street.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 412-323-7800.
