Georgia SWAT Officers Save Woman, 11 Children Being Held Hostage Outside of Atlanta

Georgia SWAT officers have rescued a woman and 11 children from a motel outside of Atlanta after they had been held hostage by an armed gunman for hours.

None of the hostages were hurt but the unidentified hostage-taker suffered critical injuries after stabbing himself in the neck when officers breached the door of the Rite4Us Inn and Suites in DeKalb County, GA.

Few details have been released at this point, including whether or not the hostage-taker was related to the woman or children; however, it was reported that the incident began following a domestic dispute.
