    DEVELOPING: A SWAT team shot a suspect who took hostages at a Walmart in Amarillo, Texas Tuesday afternoon, according to police who said the suspect was apparently dead and all hostages were safe.

    Nearly an hour after city officials reported an "active shooter incident," police said they had entered the Walmart and there was no "ongoing" shooting.

    "We do consider this a work-place violence situation at this point," the Randall County Sheriff's Office told Fox News. One store employee told KFDA the gunman earlier released a worker and the store manager but was still inside the Walmart.

    Witnesses told KVII an employee took another employee hostage

    What do the 'Yellow' vests mean?

    Are they 'special' in some way?

    it means they came out of retirement for a "greeter" position at wal mart and if their eyes are closed and they are not moving...they are not dead...just sleeping..

    Those are the decoys for active shooter situations. They are chosen because they are of an age group and demographic that is expendable.

    Oh, they are also known as "greeters."

    That one there apparently did not do his job.

    You are wayyyy off.
    It's like the Tour de France. It's a reward. They give the Yellow smock to employees who shows up to their shift for more than 2 consecutive days.
