    Suspect shot by police dies after standoff at New Jersey UPS facility - Reuters

    A 39-year-old gunman opened fire at a United Parcel Service Inc facility in New Jersey and held two employees hostage for hours on Monday before police fatally shot him, officials said.

    William Owens barricaded himself and two women inside the sorting facility in Logan Township and police sent a heavily armed SWAT team to the location, about 25 miles (40 km) southwest of downtown Philadelphia, the New Jersey Attorney General’s Office said in a statement.

    The standoff ended when Owens was shot while exiting the building with the hostages, the statement said.

    Domestic violence. Ugh. The one hostage was the guys ex girlfriend. When will this stop?! The biggest threat to women are the men in their lives.

    I never suggested all women should be lesbians...though all females would be safer. I'm suggesting men put a stop to domestic violence. Instead of grasping a world where men don't abuse, beat, kill the women in their life you jump to a world of lesbians?!
