AURORA, Colo. (CBS4) – Ten schools in Aurora were on lockdown for several hours Monday morning while police searched for two men who robbed a bank at Havana and Colfax.

The two men walked into the U.S. Bank through the back entrance just after 9 a.m. armed with guns and made off with an undetermined amount of cash.

No one was hurt, but the robbers apparently fired several shots while the crime was going on “as a means of intimidation,” according to Aurora police. There were several people in the bank at the time.

The thieves were wearing hoodies with their faces covered. Police said they were black males who were in their late teens or early 20s.

Police said they aren’t sure if the men ran away or drove off in a car. They left through the back entrance.
