Rite Aid Hostages

Looks like hostages are being held after a failed robbery attempt a few blocks from where I work.

There's a Washington Post story here.

I find it... very Washington-Postlike that a story about a "hostage situation" leads and closes with its impact on local traffic.

Update: As it turns out, there weren't any hostages, or hostage-takers. MPD spent many hours surrounding an empty store, the bad guys having evidently departed immediately after the robbery.
