Colorado standoff leaves hostage-taker dead, boy rescued

A standoff in Colorada left one person dead. Arvada police shot the suspect, 34-year old Don Pooley.

Pooley, a parolee, breached a house in the 6100 block of Gray Street and took hostage of a 13-year old boy. The boy's brother and mother were able to get out of the house. Police immediately responded to the scene at around 5:30 PM on Monday.

The suspect held the boy in hostage for 18 hours.

According to neighbors, the police asked Pooley to switch off and on the lights to signify that the boy was okay. Without a sign from Pooley, heavily armed SWAT officers bombed the front door and fatally shot Pooley.

The boy was rescued, unharmed.

Hours before, the suspect made phone calls to media outlets. "I'm not going back to prison," Pooley told the Denver Post. He also called his sister, Shawna Pooley, and told her that he didn't to spend the rest of his life in prison.

"He was crying. He didn't want to die, but he didn't want to spend the rest of his life in prison, either," Shawna told the Denver Post.

According to the police report, Pooley had an arguement with his girlfriend on Monday. The Arvada police was then called to mediate. Fearing the police, Pooley fled to a nearby house and desperately decided to hostage the boy.
