Murder charge filed in Irvine hostage attack - February 25th 2009, 03:08 AM

Quote:
Prosecutors say former prison guard, upset over failed romance, stormed his ex-girlfriend's family's house and fatally shot her father in the back of the head. Her mother and brother were also shot.

A former prison guard accused of fatally shooting a 60-year-old man while holding him and his family hostage was charged Monday with murder, attempted murder and aggravated assault, prosecutors said.

According to authorities, Alwyn Gibson II, 24, of Fairfield, Texas, was upset over a failed romantic relationship when he stormed the Irvine home of his ex-girlfriend's family.

He is charged with fatally shooting her father and wounding her mother and brother before surrendering to police early Saturday.

Discuss.

EDIT: I want to make it clear that I'm not on the side of the attacker, in case that wasn't clear before. I want him put away for life. But I still worry about his family. How must they be feeling right now?

In my opinion i see nothing wrong with it, give or takes this guy is a former prison guard. But if anything would have happened to the family there's be more casualties then one. I think the guy knew what he was doing.

If he did it, I hope he receives punishment.

I'm really glad he got put away. But he ripped apart a family when he did that. His daughter is probably going to feel guilty for the rest of her life.
