Amarillo Somali refugee taken down by police in hostage situation
Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 14, 2016
Update: Came to US from Iran, here. Is he a Somali as originally reported?
I was out this afternoon and heard news on the radio that a man had taken hostages in an Amarillo, TX Walmart and knew right away another Muslim was involved. The radio news I heard never mentioned the man’s identity so as soon as I came in, sure enough here is ‘100 percent fed up, on twitter ***with the news. He is Somali, one of probably a thousand the US State Department has planted there so BIG MEAT would have a ready supply of cheap labor.
For new readers, we have a huge archive on Amarillo, TX (a pocket of resistance where the mayor has tried for years to slow the flow). I’ll tell you more about Amarillo tomorrow when I have more energy. I’ll check the numbers too unless one of the many reporters on the refugee story beat me to it!
Here is what we learned at ‘100 percent fed up.’ Those Texans didn’t waste any time movin’ in:
Suspect shot by SWAT team and hostages are safe, per the Amarillo Police Department. Via: RS
Lt. Erick Bohannon with Special Crimes identified the suspect as 45-year-old Mohammad Moghaddan, a former employee of Walmart. Bohannon cited an apparent dispute between Moghaddan and a former manager as a possible motive for Tuesday’s events. [LOL! Workplace violence, move along, nothing to see.—Ed]
Officials believe Moghaddan barricaded himself, the unidentified manager, and another person inside an office.
The city’s police department, state troopers, and the Randall County Sheriff’s Office among other agencies all reported to the location around 11 a.m. when the first calls were received. Just over an hour later, tactical units entered the building, located the suspect, and fatally shot Moghaddan. via: KSLA
More tomorrow….. Send links in comments if you see more details overnight.
Wow! Just checked and we have 1,965 posts in our ‘crimes’ category.
***For news junkies! When you’ve been out, twitter is a really good way to quickly catch up on the news, assuming you have selected people to follow who you know stay on top of things all day!
