The stand-off which led to four individuals deaths led to the home where Nam Le took his hostages being damaged-with windows blown out and the front door smashed in.
Not immediately clear is how the victims were linked to the suspect. However, authorities did say that the people inside the residence were family members.
Two children were released from the home in the midst of the standoff. The ages of the deceased victims are not yet known. According the State, police entered the dwelling with a battering ram. The suspect was found injured inside the residence and died at a hospital.
No known motive has been offered as to the standoff and ensuing shootings as authorities continue to investigate.
Even worse: no one is talking about the Clinton, Mississippi mass shooting & hostage situation that led to the murder of 4 people yesterday.
It’s yet another example of the intersection between gun violence & domestic violence.
I haven’t seen a single tweet about it. Shameful.
