(Gwinnett County, GA) -- A hostage situation involving Georgia firefighters is now over. Five were originally called to the scene northeast of Atlanta on a medical call. One was eventually let go. The suspect was killed in a confrontation with officers as they entered the home to end the standoff. None of the firefighters were hurt.
One officer suffered a single gunshot wound to the hand in the exchange. Authorities say the suspect was demanding his utilities be turned back on. At least one source said he faked a heart issue to get the responders to the scene.
