PHOENIX, Ariz. (WTVA) — The Phoenix Police Department has released the name of the robbery suspect that law enforcement believes held up a bank in Tupelo and shot two police officers on Monday.

He is identified as 40-year-old Mario Edward Garnett from Oklahoma City.

KFOR-TV in Oklahoma City reports Garnett was sentenced in 2011 to eight months in federal prison for threatening President Obama.

A June 30, 2011 story from The Oklahoman newspaper says Garnett was ordered to get mental health care upon his release. He was also told he could not own a gun.
