James Jay Lee mortally wounded by police at Discovery Channel: dead at age 43

[tweetmeme]

I reported earlier that James Jay Lee held hostages at the Discovery Channel located in downtown Silver Spring, Maryland on Wednesday, September 2010.  One bullet by a sniper ended the life of Lee.  Lee was 43.

Montgomery County Police (tactical division) were monitoring Lee via camera, inside of the building, when they saw him point his handgun at a hostage.  At this point the tactical team moved in and ended Lee’s life with one bullet.

Lee held three men hostage. One of the men was a security guard at Discovery Channel.

Police cannot not confirm or deny if any of the hostages were injured.

Two back packs and two boxes still remain in the building which might contain explosives.  The Montgomery Bomb Squad, along with other bomb squads in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area will methodical go through the Discovery Channel building to find and diffuse bombs if need be.
