Hold Up, James Jay Lee [Updated]

Note: This post has been updated from its original version.

Radical environmentalist James Jay Lee held up hostages at gunpoint in the Discovery Channel building in Maryland today for several hours in order to make a statement about their programming. He had a long-documented history of protesting Discovery’s material.

At roughly 5pm EST, Lee, considered armed and dangerous, was shot by police in order to free the hostages. It was reported that the hostages were safe and Lee in custody.

Soon after, word was released that Lee was in fact dead from his injuries.

Sigh. Guess summer is officially over. Rough day back on the job.
