February 7, 1996 | From Times Staff and Wire Reports
A man upset over being laid off at a waterproofing business near Honolulu returned to his former workplace, shot a supervisor and held a former co-worker hostage on live television before he was fatally shot by police. Police held their fire for six hours because John Miranda had a shotgun taped to his hand and to the head of hostage Tom McNeil. It wasn't immediately clear what brought an end to the standoff, which occurred beyond camera range.
