ATLANTA (AP) — Authorities are searching for three siblings they say shot up a police car in Florida and robbed a bank in Georgia.

A federal magistrate in Macon, Ga., issued arrest warrants Thursday for 21-year-old Ryan Edward Dougherty, 26-year-old Stanley Dylan Dougherty and 29-year-old Grace Lee E. Dougherty.

The FBI says the three armed suspects entered a Valdosta, Ga., bank on Tuesday, fired shots into the ceiling and demanded money.

Earlier that morning, the FBI says a police officer in Zephyrhills, Fla., tried to pull the group over. Authorities say someone in the vehicle fired shots at the officer and disabled his car. The officer was not injured.

Authorities are also investigating whether the siblings are connected to gun parts found at Tampa International Airport Wednesday morning.
