Maryland's NBC affiliate was able to obtain an interview with two women evacuated from the Discovery Channel Building. The disgruntled gunman reportedly has a grievance with the Discovery corporation. Maybe they shouldn't have given Sarah Palin a reality show?

UPDATE: James Jay Lee, the man holding the Discovery Center hostage, reportedly has a history of protesting the Discovery Channel for not focusing on Environmental Issues.

As this story progresses, it keeps getting crazier and scarier. According to new detail, this guy's got a problem with infants, "filthy human children," and wants the channel to stop encouraging the birth of anymore "paracitic human infants." Yikes.


Here's everything you need to know up to now directly from the Silver Spring Police Chief. There are an unconfirmed number of hostages, negotiations are ongoing, and they won't say James Jay Lee's name.
