Arkansas State Police have identified the robbery suspect fatally shot by a West Memphis officer Saturday.

Police say Olugbalah Ridley, 33, of Indianapolis, “brandished a gun” at them before being shot by an officer that morning. Ridley died at the scene.

The robbery took place at Americas Best Value Inn at 2411 E. Service Road, while the shooting took place in a parking lot nearby, police said.

Ridley was a suspect in a Dec. 16 armed robbery in Indianapolis, according to a news release from the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department. Police said Ridley stole $15,000 in cash from a person making a business deposit at a bank.

Authorities have not yet released the identity of the officer who shot Ridley.

Police said Ridley stole $15,000 in cash from a person making a business department (or maybe the editor should change this to deposit) at a bank.

Quick, someone call Rep. Flowers (D) Pine Bluff and let her know Olugbalah is dead. Maybe Rep. Flowers (D) Pine Bluff can file a bill to study why Olugbalah was stealing money. If only Rep. Flowers (D) Pine Bluff had been there, she could have talked him into surrendering before this awful thing happened. Maybe Rep. Flowers (D) Pine Bluff can get a study to find out if he was merely making an "undocumented" possession of the money instead of stealing it.
