By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 02:48 p.m. HST, May 13, 2014

A lockdown was lifted at two schools Tuesday following a police investigation of a bank robbery in Salt Lake. 

The lockdown at Aliamanu Elementary and Aliamanu Middle Schools was lifted at 12:50 p.m., according to Department of Education spokeswoman Dara Young. 

At about 10:29 a.m. Tuesday, two masked men entered the American Savings Bank branch at 848 Ala Lilikoi St. One of the suspects brandished a shotgun while the other brandished a handgun, according to CrimeStoppers. Police said the men demanded money from a teller and fled on foot. 

The first suspect is described as 5-foot-10 to 5-foot-11 weighing 130 to 150 pounds. He was wearing a gray hooded jacket, ski mask and dark long pants at the time of the robbery. 

The second suspect is described a 5-foot-6 to 5-foot-7 weighing 130 pounds. He was wearing a brown hooded jacket, blue denim long pants and a red mask. 

Anyone with information on the suspects is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 955-8300 or *CRIME on your cellular phone.

That's why everyone should be allowed to conceal carry here in Hawaii. You think these fools would've rolled in there knowing that everyone around them could have a gun on them?

They'd shoot everyone first, then empty the drawers. Take your inadequacies to a state that allows you to compensate for them.

Special services get to put their show on the road for real. Might as well test them periodically to determine their readiness. Let them earn their keep.
