Hostage situations are tricky, even for experienced officers. However much training you receive on negotiation and tactics, someone's life hangs between law enforcement and the perp desperate enough to murder.Blas Leroux was desperate, indeed. Freed from prison just 3 months before this incident, he was determined not to go back to prison ever again. However, his lengthy criminal record and penchant for such crimes as trespassing, motor vehicle theft, assault, burglary, child abuse, escape, and harassment, weren't exactly hanging in his favor. The culmination took place at a 7-11 in Denver, CO, when Leroux took an old woman hostage at gunpoint and made it clear that he'd rather die than go back to jail.One police sniper gave the man his wish. Footage shows the man moving the terrified woman out of the gas station and alongside the building. It doesn't take very long for the sniper to get a good shot and take Leroux down.While the below footage shows no visible gore, it may be disturbing for some viewers.
