AMARILLO, Texas -- Police in northern Texas say an armed suspect has been shot dead after a hostage situation at a Walmart in Amarillo
“We do consider this a work-place violence situation at this point.” You know, like Fort Hood. Maybe this is a genuine workplace violence situation, but since a Somali Muslim as involved and we are so constantly lied to by authorities about jihad attacks, the possibility can’t be discounted that it is something more than that as well.
A suspect was shot and killed by a police SWAT team responding to reports of a potential active shooter and hostage situation at a Walmart in Amarillo, Texas.
The hostages inside the store were all reported to be safe. The investigation of the incident is ongoing.
The Amarillo Police Department has confirmed that there are no gunshot victims, and noted earlier that there was "no shooting ongoing at this moment." The police said that the incident "appears to be a workplace violence type event."
The Amarillo Police Department tweeted officers were "on scene with armed subject at the Walmart at Georgia and Canyon Drive" at around 12:30pm. The City of Amarillo says police and fire crews are on the scene of a reported active shooter incident at a Walmart store on Interstate 27. The subject may have hostages, according to the Amarillo Police Department. Amarillo Police have told people to avoid the area after local media reported shots had been fired.
The Amarillo Police Department has identified the suspect in today's hostage standoff as 54-year-old Mohammad Moghaddam. We have confirmed that there were two people taken hostage today...one of whom was a manager who reportedly had a dispute with Moghaddam prior to the incident.
