      Man shot in face charged for attempted bank robbery

      Man shot in face charged for attempted bank robbery
      A Liberty man who was shot in the face during an alleged attempt to rob a Trimble bank with a fake gun faced federal charges Monday.

      Michael Oliva, who was still hospitalized, had not yet appeared in court. It's not known if the 34-year-old has a lawyer.

      Prosecutors say Oliva entered First Security Bank Friday and took out what looked like a real gun. A teller dropped to the floor and crawled toward a second bank worker, who drew a .357-caliber revolver and fired twice. The first shot struck Oliva in the jaw.

      The injured man drove away but was caught after police used spike strips to stop his car.
