Nearly 10,000 people are listening to this police scanner on UStream — which also covers numerous other police departments in Kent County (so it’s not only focused on the shooting right now). The situation is extremely tense — the suspect in the Grand Rapids shooting along with the hostage, are surrounded in a tight area of the house. It is extremely dramatic to listen to. The man has a a gun with a large magazine and recently asked for a lighter.

Great news, guys. One of the two hostages has been released in the Grand Rapids shooting. From the story: "[Rodrick Shonte Dantzler] was on the phone with negotiators, who said he was holding up ‘his end of the bargain.’ Dantzler requested a ‘5-minute break.’"

Dantzler has demanded a Gatorade and cigarettes or threatens to kill one of his two hostages. A hostage came out to get the items, but returned inside the apartment.
From the Grand Rapids Press’ liveblog of the shooting/hostage situation. Could you imagine putting someone’s life in your hands over Gatorade and cigarettes? No words.

This Facebook photo album has a bunch of photos of the aftermath of a police chase at Fulton and Division — a.k.a. downtown — while they were trying to catch the suspect. Yes, there was a car chase. In Grand Rapids. (via Sean Dailey’s Facebook page)
