A woman who was taken hostage by a man ended the situation herself when she shot her abductor. According to reports, police responded to a disturbance called in on a Friday afternoon. But before they arrived, the 9-1-1 caller said the suspect had left the scene and that he was possibly holding a female held against her will. Officers located a vehicle matching the one described by witnesses, and attempted to make a traffic stop. The driver failed to stop and sped away, which is when a chase ensued. According to the police chief, “the male driver had been shot by a firearm that was inside the vehicle,” and it was the victim who pulled the trigger. The suspect was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries. The victim was also evaluated. As of this posting, the specific charges against the suspect had not been released.
