Active shooters vs. hostage takers is important do to motivational issues.

The latter might want to make a statement or be some schmuck who didn't make it out of a failed robbery. These two have different strategies and tactics that are needed from the active killer.

Some incidents were based on the hostage taker - contain and negotiate. Didn't work for the killers. In some sieges - the surrounding law used the play book for hostage takers and didn't understand the motivations and it went terribly wrong.
