    Police reportedly killed a gunman before entering a house and finding three other bodies after an hours-long stand-off.

    Four people have been killed after a gunman barricaded himself inside a house in a Denver suburb with at least three hostages, according to reports.

    The hostage-taker was among the dead at the home in Aurora, Colorado.

    Local media reported that police used tear gas to try to get the gunman out after six hours of negotiations. He was eventually shot dead after opening fire on a police car from a window.

    Police Sergeant Cassidee Carlson said: "After we arrived on scene, there were no more shots fired up until he fired at us.
    "During this time he was all over the house. He moved furniture. He was throwing things. He was agitated. He was irrational."

    Police believe the three other victims found when they entered the building were related to the suspected hostage-taker.

    Is this becoming like some sort of shrine or something? The first guy was dressed as Heath Ledger's Joker, now this nob end shoots some people.

    Totally agree that everyone needs to be armed so they can shoot shooters rather than simply make it difficult for crazies to have guns in the first place.

    Well, apparently before the Batman incident, it was nice, quiet and safe. So, too was that Connecticut town - you know the one where some crazy shot up nearly 30 children.
