(KMOV) – A hostage taker is alive following a very dramatic ending to a standoff in Denver, Colorado.
Police say a man who was shot was allegedly holding a woman hostage for hours inside a Denver 7-Eleven.
The hostage taker repeatedly told authorities he was armed and when he came outside with the woman, police took their shot, barely missing the victim.
She said officers did what they had to do.
'It was terrifying. It was stressful and I don't wish it on my enemy,” said the victim.
The suspect is in the hospital in critical condition. No other injuries were reported
