Exciting Morning

There is a shoot-out going on about half a block away from my work this morning. It is unclear what exactly is going on, but we have heard numerous shots fired and there are cops all over the place. I'll update with the details when I find out more. Update: KREM.com:

Spokane County Sheriff’s Office has confirmed that a 29-year-old armed male has fired gun shots at deputies at East Sinto Avenue and North Mullan Road in Spokane Valley, Wash. Police were advising the public to avoid the area completely . At least two people are holed up in a house and police were evacuating residents and closing down streets in the neighborhood, say police. Authorities have exchanged gunfire with the suspect and at least eight major city agencies were at the scene, which police described as 'chaotic.' Police Police believe the suspect has a high-powered rifled and may be wounded in the arm.
A few more exchanges of gunfire happened a few minutes ago. Update: 1:00 PM The standoff is still going on. We have a pretty good view from here and have been able to observe several sorties by the police to launch tear gas into the house. There has been quite a bit of wind though and it looks like most of the tear gas is just blowing back out of the house. If it is affecting the guy inside, it hasn't made him come out yet. Earlier he lit off a bunch of fireworks, I am not sure why but it was amusing to watch. It looks like now they are planning on sending in a robot to check things out. Update: 2:00 PM It's over. I'm not sure if the Police killed the guy or if he was captured (killed is my bet) but the cops are just milling around now without body armor.

awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwsome.

Now why was he having a standoff with the police?

Not to bright of a guy, of couse he could have got away, and you would have had to do you civic duty and shoot the guy, but that might be too much excitment to ask for.

I was just wondering why cubicle would pass judgement on someone he knows nothing about? Not only does he not know the person, but he definetly doesn't know the situation at hand or what led Jeremy to take the drastic steps that he did. Also if we want to discuss intelligence, then maybe he should learn grammar I believe they taught that in Elementary. I don't understand why the public cannot see that Jeremy had the standoff with the gun happy lunatics that we employ to protect law abiding citizens inorder to help him commit suicide. I know first hand who Jeremy was. Let him rest in peace.
