Denver Police Sniper Shoots Man Holding Hostage At Gunpoint 

Denver police have identified the man who was shot
while trying to use a woman as a human shield during a hostage standoff
as 34-year-old Blas Leroux, but they are not saying anything about a
possible motive.
Dramatic video shot by KDVR-TV shows Leroux leaving a 7-Eleven store
with a hostage in front of him on Monday when a police bullet to the
shoulder knocks him down and the woman runs away. Leroux was taken to a
hospital where police said he is in critical condition.
Anthony Flores told KMGH-TV that he saw the shooting from across the street. He said the suspect didn't move after being shot.


Police say the man took three hostages, but one managed to escape.
