Gunman Holding Hostages at Santa Monica Pier

Aired July 4, 2000 - 7:01 a.m. ET

THIS IS A RUSH TRANSCRIPT. THIS COPY MAY NOT BE IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED.

CAROL LIN, CNN ANCHOR: The Associated Press reports that a gunman is holding hostages on California's Santa Monica Pier. We understand he shot and wounded three police officers and a civilian before grabbing the hostages. The incident began a little more than two hours ago when Santa Monica police arrested a suspect in a triple homicide. A companion ran from the police, firing on them when they chased him.

It is not known how many hostages he is holding. Police believe he may be an accomplice in the three homicides. The Associated Press also reports a hostage negotiator has begun speaking with the suspect.

We are keeping an eye on this developing story and we will bring you more details as we get them. And once again, a gunman is holding an unknown number of hostages at an arcade on the Santa Monica, California, Pier, after shooting and wounding four people, including three police officers.
