NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – A man suspected of taking two hostages at gunpoint and opening fire inside a Norman office building has been charged.
Cleveland County District Court records show 29-year-old Devin Rogers was charged Wednesday. The documents do not list an attorney for Rogers. Jail records show he remains in the county jail. He faces charges of kidnapping; assault and battery with a deadly weapon; unlawfully firing a weapon inside a dwelling and possessing a firearm while committing a felony.
An affidavit says Rogers took one hostage at gunpoint outside the building on Monday, then entered the building and went to a second floor office where he shot his way through a glass door and took a second hostage.
Rogers eventually released the hostage and surrendered more than four hours later.
There were no injuries.
