Trio sought after bank robbery, shootout with police officer.

Authorities in two states are searching for a trio of Florida siblings suspected in a Georgia bank robbery and shootout with a Florida police officer.

Investigators believe Ryan Dougherty, Dylan Dougherty Stanley and Lee Grace Dougherty robbed a bank in Valdosta, Georgia Tuesday.

That robbery occurred several hours after the trio allegedly opened fire on a Zephyrhills, Florida police officer after he pulled them over for speeding.

The officer did not return fire, but followed the suspects' car at speeds topping 100 miles per hour before one of his tires was shot out.

The crime spree began one day after 21-year-old Ryan Dougherty was sentenced to 12 years of probation for lewd and lascivious conduct involving a minor.

The Pasco County Sheriff's office says Dougherty cut off his ankle monitor just before the shootout.
