LEESBURG, Va.- Police say the man killed by a Loudoun County sheriff's deputy during a hostage situation at a gas station [Monday] was from Winchester.

Police say 30-year-old Aleksandrin Bazhilov took a female clerk hostage at the gas station in Ashburn for several hours after there was confusion about the gas pump he used to buy gasoline.

Police say the deputy fired when Bazhilov took the hostage outside the station store last night and held a pair of scissors to her neck. She suffered only minor injuries.
