Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Huffpost.com: “Hostage Situation Unfolds During Livestreamed Texas Synagogue Service”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

A man appeared to take hostages, reportedly including a rabbi, at a Texas synagogue during a Saturday service that had been streamed live on Facebook.

The Colleyville Police Department said officers were conducting a SWAT operation on the same block as Congregation Beth Israel. Before it was taken offline, the livestream depicted an angry man shouting, sometimes about religion, and periodically engaging with law enforcement ― but the feed did not show exactly what was happening.

“I’m going to die at the end of this, all right? Are you listening? I am going to die,” the man said shortly before the Facebook stream cut off.

CNN reported that the synagogue’s rabbi was among the four hostages, citing a law enforcement source. The man claims to have planted bombs at unknown locations, ABC News reported.

The FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives joined local authorities at the scene.
