The Dover Police Department is investigating an armed robbery that took place at an outdoor ATM at the Wells Fargo Bank located at 100 North DuPont Highway.  At approximately 2:39AM on Thursday morning, a male victim was withdrawing cash from the ATM when he was approached by a black male suspect on foot.  The suspect pointed a gun at the victim and demanded money and the victim dropped his wallet, but was still holding cash in his hand from the ATM.  The victim then fled eastbound across DuPont Highway and the suspect fired at least three shots at the victim.  The victim was not struck, but one round did strike a parked vehicle in the area.  The victim observed the suspect enter a vehicle behind the bank and flee southbound with an undisclosed amount of cash from the victim.
