It's not often I discuss a current event as it happens on a given day. After spending most of my day watching YouTube videos I switch on the news and find out about this hostage situation in Colleyville, Texas. Thankfully by the end of Saturday evening it's over a hostages at a synagogue down there are safe.
Gov. Greg Abbott tweeted about 9:35 p.m. that all hostages are safe and out of a Colleyville synagogue after a loud bang and gunfire were heard.
U.S. Rep. Beth Van Duyne told a Star-Telegram reporter in a text that the hostage-taker is dead.
A loud bang followed by what sounded like gunfire was heard about 9:12 p.m. Saturday outside the Colleyville synagogue where a hostage situation has been ongoing for hours.
Here's the tweet from TX Gov. Abbott. I'm glad that all individuals who were taken as hostages are safe.
