AMARILLO, Texas -- Police in northern Texas say an armed suspect has been shot dead after a hostage situation at a Walmart in Amarillo

Cops: Suspect dead after hostage standoff at Texas Walmart

Another standoff and it is not being reported hardly anywhere. It is unconfirmed but stated that the perpetrator was a Somalian who is named Mohammed. Any thoughts? I am wondering why this is not all over the news right now.

This story doesn't fit the agenda.
Also, this was momentarily "all over" ATS earlier today.

Do you have a link for any of those threads? I would enjoy seeing what people are saying about this, and I am unable to find any specific threads concerning this news report. Thank you very much!!

Don't waste your time. The thread when this was breaking derailed into several pages of back and forth between pro/anti gun folks. Which in turn devolved into "don't you Brits tell us 'mericans what we should do!" So on and so forth.

Here's the story from different angles and agendas.

Ramadan in Texas: SWAT team shoots Muslim who took hostages…

JUNE 14, 2016 2:13 PM BY ROBERT SPENCER

“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.

Because this is the fastest, broadest, most fantastic source of news in the world.

We even had inklings of Snowden related data before the fellow blew the whistle on the whole thing. Most networks wouldn't touch that stuff with a space elevator when we got wind of mass surveillance as an existent thing.

ATS the best news network there never was.

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.

That's from their FB page, linked in your article. Possible this was a work-related dispute. Guess we'll have to wait for more details. Seeing lots of links now, so it's being picked up, if it wasn't earlier.

Nice find! THREE, as reported by a witness, and we are told ONE by authorities, and that it was "workplace violence"? Who takes pals along for that??

Screen shots taken of that article, since it will likely vanish!!

I am floored that there wasn't a licensed gun owner to neutralize the situation before it got out of control. Amarillo isn't exactly a liberal town. It was only 3 or so generations back that the people in that area were having to fend off the plains indian raids. Gun ownership is a way of life in the panhandle as much as anywhere else in the state.
