Colorado nurse sues after being a 'hostage' in armed gunman drill

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 07/31/2014 - 07:51
By Keith Coffman DENVER (Reuters) - A Colorado woman is suing the nursing home where she worked and local police for allegedly not telling her that a gunman who held her hostage was a police officer conducting a safety drill, court documents show. Michelle Meeker claims in a lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Denver that she was terrorized when an armed man confronted her last October at the Heritage Park Care Center in Carbondale, Colorado. Meeker, a registered nurse, was tending to one of her long-term patients when another employee told her to see what a "suspicious" man sitting in the center's day room wanted, according to the complaint. Although the man told her in hushed tones that he was a police officer, the lawsuit says, Meeker was not informed beforehand of the drill and was unsure whether he was telling the truth.

(Reuters) - A North Carolina man who opened fire on Wednesday on a mobile home with six people inside, killing two, was himself killed in an exchange of gunfire with authorities in a incident that also left three sheriff's deputies wounded, authorities said. The alleged shooter, Andrew Michaelis, had been arguing with his wife before she fled to her father's trailer in a park outside of Fayetteville, authorities said. From his truck, Michaelis fired a semi-automatic gun into the trailer at the Crystal Springs Mobile Home Park, striking and killing his father-in-law and the man's 10-year-old grandson, authorities said. Michaelis then drove off, but returned after deputies from the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office had responded to the scene.
