Police say a sniper has killed a man who fatally shot a bus passenger in a northern Indiana city before taking a three-year-old boy hostage.
Fort Wayne police chief Rusty York said 45-year-old Kenneth Knight was killed by a single shot from a sniper.
Police spokeswoman Raquel Foster told The Journal Gazette shortly before that officers had taken the child from the house, where he had been held hostage by the man who pulled a 49-year-old woman off a bus and shot her on Wednesday morning.
Allen County coroner’s office identified the woman as Jacqueline Bouvier Hardy, of Fort Wayne.
Ms Foster said a protective order had been filed against Knight in the past few days, but she did not say who requested the order.
