TX - Female Hostage Freed From Texas Hotel, Captor Shoots Self
DALLAS — A man took a woman hostage in an airport hotel room early Wednesday and shot through the wall at police, hitting one officer and sparking a standoff before apparently shooting himself, authorities said.
Dallas Police spokesman Lt. Rick Watson said the woman had two gunshot wounds as she emerged from the room about 3 hours later and told officers the man had shot himself. Their relationship and what sparked the shooting wasn't immediately clear.
The woman was in serious condition at Parkland Memorial Hospital, Watson said. Officer Jeremy Borchardt, also at Parkland, was in stable condition after surgery to repair a cut artery in his upper thigh, Watson said.
The standoff began after 911 operators received a call shortly after 4 a.m. reporting a person injured in a fourth-floor room at a Radisson Hotel near Dallas Love Field.
