Convicted bank robber charged in Toronto crossbow deaths

A Toronto bank robber known as the "fake beard bandit" was charged with three counts of first-degree murder after three people were killed in a crossbow attack in the city's east end, police in Canada's largest city said on Friday.

Brett Ryan, 35, who appeared in court briefly on Friday, was arrested in 2008 for committing robberies in disguise, police said. He was charged with more than a dozen counts of robbery and later convicted.

Two men and a woman died in the driveway of a house on Thursday.

One of the people who was killed made a 911 emergency call before dying, according to a local newspaper report, which said the suspect had also been wounded.
