SUWANEE, Ga. (AP) — Authorities in northwest Georgia say a barricaded man is holding five firefighters hostage. Gwinnett County Police Cpl. Edwin Ritter says firefighters on Wednesday responded to a medical call in Suwanee and were taken hostage by a suspect he didn't identify. Ritter says information on a possible motive was not immediately available and a SWAT team is on the scene. He gave no more details. A call to the Gwinnett County Fire Department was not immediately returned. Suwanee is about 35 miles northeast of downtown Atlanta.

I understand where you're coming from. The only reason is probably a former fire fighter who was fire or something o that nature and decided to hold them hostage. That is the only logical stance I have currently.

Report from police:
SWAT went in, thats what the explosions were.
Suspect killed from exchange of gunfire.
One cop injured from flashbangs, but not life threatening.
All firefighters fine and will be going home tonight.

The only thing disgusting in this story is that this guy held firemen, generally some of the most selfless people on the planet, hostage at gunpoint.
