Denver Police Shoot Hostage Taker During Robbery Caught on Tape

1 batt 400

Denver police shot a man who they say took three hostages at a 7-Eleven and refused commands to let one of them go. Chief White said negotiators tried for nearly an hour to get him to surrender. He refused and instead used one of the hostages as a shield in an attempt to escape.

“The officers demanded that he let her go, at which time he attempted to pull her back into the store,” White said. “So out of fear for her safety, one of the officers fired a shot striking the individual” and it was caught on camera.
