In the wake of the hostage standoff that left one man dead after being shot by police, two residents spoke during the open forum portion of Wednesday night's Woodbury City Council meeting.
The Red Roof Inn has come under fire since that Aug. 31 incident. Attempted murder, rape and robbery charges have been leveled against the suspect in that case. The police who shot one of the hostages—after he apparently ran out of the room when a shot was fired and refused to comply with officers' commands—have been placed on administrative leave.
(The council does not typically respond to those who speak during the open forum.)
