    Discovery Hostage Situation Flipcam Screengrabs


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     LoftonFilms works just two blocks away from the Discovery offices. He was totally unaware of the incident until a friend e-mailed him about it. He took these screen grabs on his Flip cam across the street from the Discovery building just outside Flippin’ Pizza. 'In the photos people are in a panic talking on their phones while looking at the Discovery building. Armed police officers line the streets. A SWAT truck (or Bomb Squad truck) drives in front of the Discovery building,' he said.
    - zdan, CNN iReport producer

    All photos taken between 2 - 2:45 PM
