First of all, I want to thank the Montgomery County Police and all the agencies that responded today for helping to ensure the safety of all my colleagues at Discovery Communications.
And for helping to get me and my fellow hostages out safely.
I want to thank my family, friends and coworkers for their thoughts and prayers during this situation.
And I especially want to thank Discovery for their support.
At this time, because the criminal investigation is still ongoing, I will have no further comments regarding the events of this afternoon.
But I thank you for all for your concern during these harrowing hours.
