Hostage Situation at Discovery Channel HQ in Silver Springs

A hostage situation at the Discovery Channel headquarters in Silver Spring, Maryland, has been averted. A man entered the lobby, possibly fired his weapon, and said, “Nobody is going anywhere.” The suspect, who may have had an explosive device, is allegedly 43-year-old James Jae Lee, and he has a history of protesting outside the Discovery Channel HQ. A list of Lee's demands of the Discovery Channel is available at savetheplanetprotest.com. They include, "All programs on Discovery Health-TLC must stop encouraging the birth of any more parasitic human infants"; "Immigration: Programs must be developed to find solutions to stopping ALL immigration pollution and the anchor baby filth that follows"; and "Civilization must be exposed for the filth it is."

Update: Police have shot and killed the suspect, and say that three hostages are now safe. Other "devices" are in the building that have not yet been secured.
