Rest in Peace Richard Castellana.

This is a wild story.

Richard Castellana a retired police officer from Cook County in Illinois was shot in the face and killed in front of the Midwest Bank in Gary, Indiana. Castellana was walking on the sidewalk in front of the Indiana bank when he was ambushed.

Two men killed the security guard then entered the bank to rob them of $9,771.09.

According to reports, the two men involved were Haiely Gist-Holden, 26, and James King, 24. The police report says one demanded money from the teller while the other watched the door.

One of the suspects was the owner and coach of the Illini Panthers an amateur football coach/owner. He was tracked down in Georgia and is willing to become an informant. His 17-page affidavit has him telling on everyone.

This story is horrible, and we ask that you please keep the Castellana family in your prayers. Rest in Peace Richard.
