    Default Policewoman shoots point blank and kills hostage-taker in Guangzhou, China

    Man takes passer-by hostage in China

    For more photos, click here. AN UNDERCOVER policewoman ended an hour-long hostage drama in Guangzhou, China, in three seconds.
    She fired four shots and killed a robber, who was holding a woman hostage, after distracting him with a bottled drink.
    Guangzhou Daily reported that the drama started after the 38-year-old man robbed a man near a train station on Tuesday at about 8pm.
    The victim had resisted and the man used a knife to stab him before fleeing.
    Police gave chase, but the man grabbed hold of a female passer-by near a bus stop and held her hostage in front of an ATM at about 8.25pm.
    He wrapped his left arm around her neck while holding the knife at her throat.
    Police cordoned off the area and hostage negotiators tried to talk the man out of harming the woman.
    The man said he did not want to harm the hostage, but each time police officers tried to edge closer, he slashed the woman on her arm and leg.
    The atmosphere became more tense after an hour of negotiations. The man had become more agitated after his requests for a gun and transportation to Hubei province were refused.
    By then, the woman's clothes were soaked in blood.
    At 9.25pm, a plainclothes policewoman approached the pair and offered the man a bottled drink after he complained of being thirsty, but threw the bottled drink onto the ground near the man.
    The man stepped forward and used his right leg to roll the bottle closer to him.
    He then bent down to pick up the bottle and the policewoman seized her chance to draw her gun. She ran forward and fired a shot at the man without hesitation.
    The man fell backwards, still holding on to the hostage. The policewoman then fired another three shots at the man at point-blank range, killing him.
    The hostage was taken to a nearby hospital. She is in stable condition.
    The man was reported to be a thief from Hubei and had been on the run from police there.
    The 1.6m-tall policewoman, known only as Ms Xiu, later told Guangzhou Daily that while she had been with the police force for 27 years and had received training as a sniper, this was the first time she had fired a gun at someone.

    The pictures on the website really make it seem like a HK crime movie.

    That is pretty badass. If only all women were no nonsense like that.

    Wow, supercop.

    But, pity the robber a bit.

    I guess the policewoman need to make sure that the hostage is safe.
