Update: Gunman at Discovery Channel Headquarters Killed by Police
Today, a man entered the Discovery Channel Headquarters near Washington, D.C. and held 3 people hostage at gunpoint. The man also had canisters strapped to his body that were suspected to be explosives of some kind.
After several hours of negotiations, one thing led to another and the gunman ended up shot to death by the police. The shots detonated one of the devices strapped to his body, but it is still unknown whether the others were explosive or not. All 3 hostages—one security officer and two employees—are safe and unharmed.
