An unidentified gunman took up to nine people hostage at a microfinance organization in the Georgian capital Tbilisi on Friday, police said.
The shooter’s demands were not immediately clear.
Police blocked off 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 ransom of $ 500,000 and freeing all the hostages.
