Brtish Suspect Malik Faisal Akram was confirmed dead, and his four hostages were released after his 10-hours holding spree in a synagogue in Texas.
Malik took a rabbi and three others hostage, during a morning service at Congregation Beth Israel in Colleyville, a town 15 miles northeast of Fort Worth. Witnesses in the Church said Malik said he had a bomb.
According to the Fort Worth Telegram, the video image was frozen, but the audio could be heard of a man who was “ranting at times with an angry voice,” speaking about Islam, using profanities and saying repeatedly that he was going to die.
The Telegram Report said, “The man talked about religion and repeatedly mentioned someone he called his sister, whom he said he wanted released from prison. It sounded as if he was on the phone, perhaps with police negotiators. The man said a few times he didn’t want anyone hurt, and he has mentioned his children.”
After long negotiations with the police force, Akram released the four hostages alive at 9:15pm. Gun shots were fired and the police confirmed Akram dead.
