Crowds at the scene STORYLINE A man arrested after a fatal shootout with police has admitted throwing a grenade at a rally in May where U.S. President George W. Bush was making a speech, the Georgian government said on Thursday. The government said the suspect made the admission in the hospital, where he is being treated for wounds suffered in the shootout that erupted in a village on the outskirts of the capital Tbilisi when police tried to arrest him late Wednesday. One policeman was killed in the shootout and the suspect, Vladimir Arutyunian, fled into a nearby woods. He was captured about an hour later and taken to a hospital for treatment of gunshot wounds. Bush and Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili were on the podium in front of a massive crowd in dowtown Tbilisi when the live grenade was thrown. The grenade landed less than 100 feet (30 meters) from the podium but did not explode. A preliminary investigation indicated the activation device deployed too slowly to hit the blasting cap hard enough, the FBI said. Georgia's Interior Minister, Vano Merabishvili , gave a briefing shortly after Wednesday's arrest, in which he expressed his condolences to the family of Zurab Kvlivishvili, the police officer killed during the shootout. He said Arutyunyan had also been wounded in the course of his arrest and said an investigation was underway as to what his motives for the crime might have been. Merabishvili had previously offered a reward of about 80,000 US dollars for information leading to the capture of the man responsible for the failed attack.
