HOUSTON (AP) _ Houston police say a NASA contract worker who barricaded himself in a Johnson Space Center office building has killed himself and a hostage.

A police spokesman says a second hostage, who was bound with tape, is safe.

Captain Dwayne Ready says negotiators had made contact with the worker when they heard a gunshot.

The gunman is said to have been armed with a revolver.
