Georgia Hostage-Taker's Demand: Restore My Cable Man was facing foreclosure: officials By Matt Cantor, Newser User Posted Apr 11, 2013 3:29 AM CDT Updated Apr 11, 2013 5:14 AM CDT 31 comments Comments A police officer leaves the scene after an explosion and gunshots were heard Wednesday, April 10, 2013 in Suwanee, Ga. (AP Photo/John Bazemore) (Newser) – The man who held four firefighters hostage at a home in Suwanee, Ga., told negotiating cops he wanted his utilities and cable turned back on, authorities say. He had reportedly lost the services amid financial trouble; he also faced foreclosure on his home, a police officer said. "People can often be desperate," noted a local fire captain. Police negotiated with the man for four hours before a SWAT team killed him, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. After receiving minor injuries, at least two firefighters have now been released from the hospital, WSB-TV reports. The man had reportedly lured them with a faked heart attack: It "was a typical emergency response—no indication that anything would go wrong," the fire captain said.
