The so-called "AK-47 Bandit" could be linked to a Nebraska bank robbery.
An image from surveillance video taken during a bank robbery in Nebraska city more than a week ago, suggests it could be the same robber.
FBI agents say the alleged robber walked into the bank carrying the AK-47 and ordered employees to hand over money. He then forced those employees into a vault.
No one was hurt and the suspect hasn't been caught.
Police are asking the public to be on alert.
"We want to make every one aware of how violent this individual is. He's not afraid to pull the trigger. He's already shot a police officer. So anybody who gives him any resistance, he's not afraid to act."
Nebraska police believe he may be the "AK-47 Bandit,” who robbed a bank in  California, in 2012.
An officer was shot during that incident.
California  police are also  in Nebraska to work with local officials and the FBI on the case.
A reward of up to $100,000 is being offered for information leading to the suspect's arrest. 
Anyone with information was asked to contact investigators at the Chino Police Department at (800) 78-CRIME, or the FBI at (402) 493-8688 or the Nebraska City Police Department at (402) 873-9044.
