An eight-hour hostage standoff with a wheelchair-bound gunman at a Wytheville, Virginia post office finally came to an end Thursday morning. The suspect wheeled himself out of the office and was taken custody while his three hostages were freed. Early reports suggested he had taken five hostages, but according to Wytheville mayor Trent Crewe, some people who ran from the scene were not immediately accounted for at the time. The gunman reportedly fired his weapon after entering the post office at 2:30 pm and held police at bay by suggesting he may have had a "device" rigged nearby, possibly a bomb. Authorities say they have yet to confirm any explosives and the suspect's motive is unknown.
