Police used a gun disguised as a television camera and the lure of a media interview to shoot a gunman holding 25 children and three adults, ending a 28-hour hostage crisis. The siege ended early Thursday evening when the gunman, who police said had a history of psychiatric problems, was shot twice in the head at close range and critically wounded by a marksman posing as a TV cameraman.

They fired two shots and hit him once in the head with a gun apparently concealed in a TV camera.
