A convicted killer was slain Friday by sheriff's deputies who stormed into an infirmary office where he held a woman doctor hostage for 10 hours at the Northern Nevada Correctional Center, officials said. Kenneth James Meller, 48, was shot by deputies who tossed a "flash-and-bang" concussion grenade into the 12-by-12-foot office and then rushed through a door and broke through thin wooden wall panels. Dr. Karen Gedney was stunned by the explosive device but otherwise unhurt.

Two gunmen held a group of pawnshop employees hostage and police at bay for six hours Thursday--at one point having a pizza delivered--after a botched robbery attempt they orchestrated with another store employee, authorities said. Police were called to the strip mall 10 miles north of the Las Vegas Strip after the gunmen barged in the front door about 8:10 a.m., just as employees were opening Super Pawn.
