Police are in a confrontation with wanted fugitive Raoul Moat and he is holding a gun to his head, Sky's crime correspondent Martin Brunt says.
"A man matching Moat's description is on the riverbank and police marksmen are negotiating with him," said Brunt.
"Police are in confrontation with the suspect and I am told he is holding a gun to his head."
A police tweet confirmed: "A man who fits the description of Raoul Thomas Moat located in the riverbank area in the vicinity of Rothbury. Police currently negotiating."
Another witness called Paula also says Moat is holding a gun to his head and is being watched by police snipers from nearby woods.
He is outside her mother's home on a riverbank in Rothbury.

So he's holding himself hostage?
I think the police should shoot him to protect the hostage.

i agree shoot his gun and make his ass go back to jail. I think if he survives there will be a special sentence for him 40 years i think.

Makes me laugh how the police and news still refer to him as SUSPECTED killer, He wrote a letter telling them it was him.
