GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga.
Several Channel 2 Action News crews are in Suwanee where a barricaded gunman just released one of five Gwinnett firefighters being held hostage at a foreclosed home.

Channel 2's Kerry Kavanaugh arrived at the scene shortly after 5 p.m. She said several Gwinnett County SWAT officers are at 2440 Walnut Grove Way near Collins Hill and Taylor roads. The neighborhood is across from Walnut Grove Elementary School off Interstate 85.

Fire officials told Kavanaugh the man faked a heart attack to get them to the home. It is unclear what motivated the gunman to hold the firefighters hostage.

"These are firefighters who are cross-trained as emergency medical technicians, as paramedics," said Gwinnett Fire Capt. Tommy Rutledge.

"This was a typical emergency response. We had no indication that anything would go wrong and firefighters went in with their equipment to meet the person inside," he said.

The chief said he has not received any indication that the firefighters have been harmed. He said police have been in communication with the gunman.

"We just want our fire fighters released," Rutledge said.

Police have restricted people from entering the neighborhood.

Channel 2 Action News will bring live updates on this developing story on Channel 2 Action News.

This I agree with, it will be the equivalent of arming pilots.

I'm not replying to others right now, I'm replying to you. Are you really saying, "But so and so is doing it too!"? You have written one of the most childish posts I have ever read on this POS site.
