FORT STEWART, Ga. (AP) - The Army says a former soldier
demanding behavioral treatment took three workers hostage at a
Georgia military hospital before surrendering.
Fort Stewart spokesman Kevin Larson says no one was hurt during
the short standoff early Monday at the post's Winn Army Community
Larson says the man was carrying four guns when he came into the
hospital around 4 a.m. Monday and took the three workers hostage on
the third floor.
He says the gunman told them he wanted treatment for behavioral problems.
The suspect's name has not been released.
Larson says one of the hostages, an Army officer who is a nurse,
helped police talk the gunman into surrendering peacefully.
