AN armed doctor in Texas held various people hostage and has reportedly “killed a female pediatrician” at a children’s medical center.
Authorities negotiated with the doctor for nearly six hours and have reported two people dead so far.
What is the hostage doctor situation in Austin?
Negotiators at the children’s medical center pleaded with a gunman for hours through a bullhorn, Fox News reported to release the hostages.
"You don’t deserve to go through this… for all you have done for others… that is why I want to help you work through this," the police officer said to the suspect.
"You have saved a lot of lives."
According to KVUE, the suspect appeared to be a doctor.
During the standoff the negotiator repeatedly asked the suspect to cooperate.
“I cannot guarantee your safety unless you comply," the negotiator said, according to KVUE.
Austin police also said that there were only two people inside the building at the end of the night.
They are still investigating whether any other people may have been inside earlier in the evening.
