By The Associated Press
BRAZIL — A suspect wanted by authorities released two hostages but remained holed up during an hours-long standoff with police in western Indiana on Thursday.
Chief Shawn Keen of the Terre Haute Police Department released a statement Thursday afternoon saying the Vigo County Drug Task Force and U.S. Marshal’s Service Task Force attempted to make contact with the suspect about 10:30 a.m. at a room at a Best Western hotel near Interstate 70 in Clay County.
“After announcing their presence, a shot was fired through the door from inside the room," Keen said.
Negotiators won the release of a female and juvenile from inside the room, Keen said. Negotiations were continuing at 1:30 p.m.
No injuries were reported to any officer or the suspect, he said.
Police have made no public statements so far.
