From bluelivesmatter.com -
"Attempts were made for Henderson to surrender, but he refused, and opened fire on officers who had surrounded the building and nearby area.
Officers returned fire, and Henderson was shot and killed. At some point after Henderson escaped, before he barricaded himself, he took the female stepdaughter of an assistant warden who lived on prison property hostage."
Our sincerest thoughts and prayers go out to Amanda's family and friends.
