Police: Bus shooting suspect holding child hostage

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) - Police in northern Indiana say officers have gathered around a home where a man suspected of killing a bus passenger earlier in the day is holding a child hostage.

Police spokeswoman Raquel Foster tells The Journal Gazette that the suspect is holed up in a Fort Wayne house near the street where a woman was pulled off a bus and fatally shot earlier Wednesday. She says he is holding a 3-year-old child hostage.

The relationship between the suspect, the victim and the child wasn't immediately known.

Police confirmed the hostage situation about five hours after a man pulled a woman off a city bus in crowded traffic about 8 a.m. and fatally shot her about 25 feet away before fleeing into the surrounding neighborhood.
