Dramatic Ending for Sydney Hostage Situation [Video]
The hostage situation in Sydney finally came to an end Monday after about 16 hours.
Police stormed Lindt Chocolate Cafe at Martin Place when they heard a gun go off, and then the hostages ran out.
The gunman is Man Haron Monis, an Iranian man with a long criminal record who was out on bail, according to Seven News and The Sydney Morning Herald. The two dead hostages are Katrina Dawson, a 38-year-old mother of three, and Tori Johnson, the 34-year-old manager of the cafe.
Witnesses said the manager made a grab for the gunman's weapon while the gunman slept, and somehow he was shot in the struggle.
