Television cameras have captured the moment a Swat team stormed an apartment and shot dead a man who killed six people
There had been a stand-off with officers lasting eight hours after the suspect had barricaded himself with hostages inside the complex in Florida.
It ended with a shoot-out – footage showed bright red flashes and the crackle of gunfire as the specialist team went into the apartment. Police entered the flat as they believed two hostages were still alive and were being held at gunpoint.
The stand-off began around 6.30pm local time in a five story building in Hialeah, just north of Miami. The bodies of three women and two men were found in the apartment complex after officers arrived.
