    CO - Hostage situation reported at Denver RadioShack

    DEVELOPING -- Police are on the scene of a reported hostage situation at a Denver RadioShack, Fox 31 Denver reports.

    Denver police confirm to Fox 31 there are at least two officers, one hostage and at least one suspect inside. There are believed to be two suspects. A crisis negotiation team is reportedly on the scene.

    The hostage is reportedly the manager of the RadioShack, Chris Nimerfroh. Nimerfroh is reportedly a single father.

    Ernest Watson, a friend of one of the suspects, tells Fox 31 the gunmen were attempting to rob the PayDay Loans store next door to the RadioShack. When police arrived on the scene, Watson says the suspects fired at police and then retreated into the RadioShack, taking a hostage with them.

    In our local news, the DFW area where Radio Shack is based, RS was reporting major layoff news. Wonder if this prompted a single,19 yo father to act in a desperate way, not that it would justify his actions.

    From your link Reader, it says the situation has ended.
