    Man shot, killed by SWAT after taking hostages in Pompano

    By Joel Marino South Florida Sun-Sentinel 6:20 PM EDT, April 24, 2008

    POMPANO BEACH - A man who barricaded himself in a condo's club house and took at least two women hostage was shot and killed by a SWAT team this afternoon, the Broward Sheriff's Office said.

    The man, whose name has not been released, entered the club house of the Cypress Bend complex, in the 2400 block of Cypress Bend, shortly before 3 p.m., authorities said.

    He demanded the homeowner's association hear his complaints, then pulled out a revolver. A group of women inside called 911.

    Police called a SWAT unit to the scene. The man left the building around 3:40 p.m., pulling a gun from the waistband of his pants as he walked toward the SWAT unit, said sheriff's spokesman Jim Leljedal.

    That's when the team shot him.

    The man was taken to North Broward Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

    It'll take at least 10 hours before residents are allowed back inside, Leljedal said.

    Just a note on cell phones and 911 -

    I called 911 this morning to report a suspicious vehicle in my neighborhood, and I called on the cell as I was out walking the dogs. Both when I dialed and when I hung up from the call, my phone made a distinctive sound! That gave me the creeps - if I'm in a bad situation and I want to call 911 without tipping anyone off, the LAST thing I want is some "meaningful" ringtone from my cell. THAT got changed ASAP!
