NewsBreakerApr 11 '13

A hostage taker in Georgia was shot dead a SWAT team, Wednesday night, after taking five firefighters hostage in a foreclosed home. Firefighters responded to a medical call at a home in Gwinnett County, forty miles north of Atlanta. Officials say the suspect faked a heart attack, and once he got the firefighters inside, he took them hostage at gun point, demanding his power, cell phone service, and cable be restored. One firefighter was released, four others were rescued when SWAT stored the home believing the firefighters' lives were in "imminent danger."
