Gunman Captured After Standoff

KINGSTON, Jamaica (AP) - Police say a gunman who hijacked a
plane in Jamaica has been captured after an eight-hour standoff
with police.
Police spokeswoman Camille Tracey says authorities disarmed the
young man whom authorities described as "mentally challenged."
Authorities say the 20-year-old Jamaican forced his way past
security check points and seized the CanJet Airlines plane late
Sunday night. He quickly released all the passengers and two crew
members, but six crew members were held at gunpoint hours longer.
