    ' Friends and family are mourning the death of a hostage who was killed after a bank robbery, high-speed chase and police shootout (Wednesday) in Stockton.
    She was a wife and a mother.'

    Misty Holt-Singh, with her little girl, was a customer at the bank when armed robbers took her and two bank employees hostage. Two suspects also died, one during the car chase, one later in hospital. The pursuit of the suspects has rocked the community. The chase lasted 45 minutes, involved damage to 14 vehicles and resulted in houses and vehicles being sprayed with bullets. The suspects were armed with an AK-47 type rifle. Two other hostages managed to jump from the vehicle during the chase, slightly injured, but Misty was used as a human shield.

    It's not clear who shot her.

    'It was at the Bank of the West on Hammer Lane in Stockton that the daughter of Misty Holt-Singh waited to hear what happened to her mother. Misty was taken hostage by three men who had just robbed the bank.'

    Misty's 12 yr old daughter was left at the bank, and texted her dad that mom had been taken hostage. For a long time the family just waited, hoping Misty would be rescued safe. :(

    'Stockton police said a second suspect has died after a bank robbery and gunbattle that led to the death of a hostage.

    The third hostage — the bank customer — was found dead inside of the SUV due to gunfire, Stockton police said. Stockton Police Chief Eric Jones said she was used as a human shield during the firefight, but it is unclear who shot her.'

    Sounds like trigger happy LE! This is overkill by a non-skilled police dept. Hostages being used as human shields, houses and vehicles sprayed with flying bullets, and LE keeps returning fire.

    Where were the expert shooters? Why didn't LE shoot the tire/s out? Where were armored vehicles to get close or intercept the robbers?

    From the original post, the statement from the Stockton police "but it is unclear who shot her", oh really?!
    A moving vehicle, lots of LE shooting many guns, what a stupid remark! Bet there will be lawsuits over this incident.

    From the description of this shoot out, it is amazing more people were not injured.

    My opinions only!

    I watched the chase live online, as well as seeing the two suspects on the ground outside of their vehicle at the conclusion. I had heard there was a hostage but didn't see one. Now I know why. I'm so heartbroken to hear that she didn't survive. My prayers are with her family.

    I just want to make it clear that the tragic death of this innocent mother was the direct result of the actions of the ruthless robbers. This woman was not murdered by police or killed due to any negligence on the part of any law enforcement officer. These cowardly criminals made it necessary for law enforcement to pursue them aggressively. Clearly, they were hell bent on mayhem and murder. Cops did their best to stop these criminals before they took any more hostages or ambushed their pursuers. A heroic effort on the part of LE with tragic results due the the purely evil goals of these worthless criminals.

    Cops criticized for 'excessive' 600-round volley of bullets that left hostage dead in bank robbery shootout

    The 2014 shootout left hostage Misty Holt-Singh dead after she was struck by 10 officer bullets as she was used as a human shield by a suspect

    The three suspects, armed with handguns and an AK-47, robbed a California and took three women hostage before fleeing in an SUV

    They then led police on an hour-long pursuit and gun battle during which more than a dozen police vehicles were shot

    A report found that, once they finally stopped, 'a lack of planning...created a level of chaos that was difficult to manage and overcome'
