Police: Hostage Taker Ends his Own Life in Bovina
8/12/2013 (Updated 7:32:14 PM)Police say a hostage taker who threatened to shoot any law enforcement that approached is dead after taking his own life.
The incident in the Town of Bovina in Delaware County began when police say 32-year-old Justin Geraghty held two people hostage Sunday afternoon.
He released them soon thereafter but Geraghty then barricaded himself in the home with a gun and threatened to kill officers if confronted.
After hours of unsuccessful negotiations, police deployed tear gas and lost communication with Geraghty.
Police say they then searched the residence and found Geraghty dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.
