Fox News Channel reports an armed man has hostages in the Discovery building in Silver Spring, M.D., a suburb of Washington, D.C. The man is a regular protester of the Discovery Channel and the Montgomery County Police are negotiating with him. His name is James Lee was said to have entered the building with a small gun, took a small group of hostage and has some kind of bomb looking structure front and back.
He was arrested before for protesting the Discovery Channel which he plans as being part of the problem.
As I am writing this channel 7 news reported they have captured the protester. He went down and the explosive device went off. James Lee was said to have had a wide range of emotions during the hours of negotiations.
We do not have any information on if the suspect is alive but in theory he is alive because he is in custody. He may not be removed to be taken to the hospital yet because the building is not yet considered secure.
The 3 hostages are safe! There were also children in the building at a day care center and they were all safely evacuated. Repeat every one is safe except for the armed protester who is in police custody.
The shooting happened at 4:48. He was shot by the police. There may be more devices in the building -- they may be back packs with bombs.
