Reporters at scene of hostage crisis hear ‘loud bang’

Reporters from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram at the scene of the synagogue hostage crisis report hearing loud, explosive sounds. The source of the sounds is unclear.

Reporter James Hartley says, “Hearing what sounds like gunshots and a much louder bang, possibly a flash grenade. Heard the loud bang followed by two fast pops.”

Jessika Harkay, also of the Forth Worth Star-Telegram, says, “We just heard a huge ‘BOOM.’ Unsure what the source of it was, or what it’s connection is to the situation.”

Jamie Landers of Dallas Morning News says “Just told to hit the ground. Either a bomb or shots fired just now. Trying our best to get information.”

She says she was told officials cut power to the synagogue.
