Il detenuto ucciso dalla polizia ha tenuto in ostaggio l'agente di correzione e ha preso la sua radio e le chiavi per liberare altri detenuti, dice l'amministratore

An inmate in the Oklahoma County Detention Center held a correctional officer hostage, ha preso la sua radio e le chiavi e ha rilasciato altri detenuti prima di essere colpito e ucciso dalla polizia sabato, the facility’s administrator said in a news conference.

Oklahoma County Detention Center Administrator Greg Williams said the hostage situation took place during a med pass, which is when medicine is given to the inmates.
C'erano 37 inmates housed on the floor, but it’s not clear how many were released and how many were involved in the incident, Williams ha detto.
      The hostage situation occurred in a segregation pod, where theinmates that are most difficult to handle are housed,” Williams ha spiegato.
        Oklahoma County Sheriff Tommie Johnson III said his department dispatched the senior tactical team to the scene just after 4 p.m. (5 p.m. E).
          The team tried to de-escalate the situation, but the inmate had the detention officer in ahostage position” con “something held to his neck,” Johnson ha detto, so responders used lethal force.
          Gas was deployed during the situation, Johnson ha detto.
          Officers with the Oklahoma City Police Department also responded to the scene to provide aid and were among the officers who administered the lethal force, according to Oklahoma City Police Chief Wade Gourley.
          Gourley said they will interview officers in the coming days and are conducting interviews of those involved in the situation.
            We’re glad that the detention officer wasn’t more seriously hurt and we were able to get him out of there and protect him,” Gourley said.
            Williams said the correctional officer was able to walk out of the jail and is now in the hospital.
