It’s been four days since an employee was held hostage for six hours inside a Denver Radio Shack. Employees were there getting ready to reopen Tuesday but say there’s no word yet on when that will happen.
It started with a robbery and gunshots and led to a six-hour standoff involving an innocent man simply trying to do his job who wound up fearing for his life. In the end police arrested two men and got the hostage out unharmed.
An aggressive police response to an apparent hostage situation continued in East Denver late Friday morning, with SWAT teams and dozens of officers surrounding a store on Colfax Avenue.
