An unidentified shooter took up to nine people hostage at a microfinance organization in the Georgian capital Tbilisi on Friday, police said.
It was not immediately clear what the gunman’s demands were.
The police have blocked the area around the building in the city center.
Last month, a masked gunman took 43 hostages in a bank robbery in the town of Zugdidi, western Georgia. He disappeared after receiving a $ 500,000 ransom and releasing all of the hostages.
