Heavy gun fire in the Russian school where 300+ people are being held hostage. Seems to be ending, with alot of deaths. Turn to FNC, live...

Sorry if dupe.

ETA, there are helicopters flying over the school giving cover fire for troops on the ground.

The reporters on both FNC and CNN and to take cover because they were to close to the gunfire.- The audio sounds like the shots are a few feet away.

Also, the roof of the school may have just colapsed.

for the past 45 mins you can hear a battle going on in the background. lots of smallarms fire and shit blowing up. not sounding good at all. some of the kids and adults made it out after the first 2 blasts. they were coverd in blood. needles to say something went sideways big time.

A Russian member on military photos is saying it wasnt a breach. A group of hostages made a run for it and they covered their escape.

CNN reported that when some Russian soldiers went to get 24 bodies of people killed three days ago outside the school, all hell broke loose.

-The Russians had the ok to get the bodies and were attacked. Then some of the hostage takers came out guns and bombs a blazing.
