The 'gunman' in yesterday's Discovery Channel hostage standoff was only armed with starter pistols, which are incapable of firing bullets. He also had bombs.
Investigators say there were four explosive devices in the Discovery Channel building in Silver Springs and four in his rented room in Wheaton. The devices could have been deadly, Montgomery County (Md.) police Chief Tom Manger said.
Explosive Ordnance Disposal teams searched James J. Lee's rented residence on Thursday and found four additional devices detonated them remotely and safely.
Bowers declined to talk more about the improvised explosive devices found at the Discovery Channel headquarters. Bowers added that investigators are searching for Lee's vehicle.
