A witness video from Belgium shows resolution of terrorist event in which a man killed two police and a bystander before being killed by the authorities.

Those two police officers died of their wounds, and the attacker took their guns. He then walked up to a nearby vehicle and randomly shot and killed the occupant. Witnesses say the murder was chanting Allahu Akbar (God is the greatest) during the frenzied attack.
According to reports, as the responding police closed in, the man took a woman hostage. In the following video, SWAT type officers can be seen lined up on the sidewalk stacked along a building. Suddenly, the suspect comes out firing rapidly toward the officers with the stolen weapon. The officers return a high volume of fire, killing the suspect.
