A standoff at Houston's Johnson Space Center has ended with deadly results. Police say a NASA contract worker has killed a hostage and himself.
The shootings occurred after a nearly four hour standoff in an office building at the space center. A second hostage, a woman who was bound with tape, had minor injuries.
Houston Police Captain Dwayne Ready says the gunman, who barricaded himself on the second floor, shot himself once in the head.
