Oklahoma Hostages Freed, Gunman Taken Into Custody

By    |   Tuesday, 11 Nov 2014 05:37 AM

Two people held hostage for several hours in an Oklahoma office building were freed uninjured and an armed man was taken into custody on Monday.

"Suspect in custody," police in Norman, about 20 miles south of Oklahoma City, said in a statement, Reuters reported. Police said they had been in talks with the suspect, trying to negotiate a peaceful resolution to the standoff.

TV news crews showed dozens of people flooding out of the Nextep office building, which has been surrounded by police and emergency vehicles.

David Blair, a paralegal with the Farzaneh immigration law office in the building, told local TV broadcaster News 9 that he spoke to one woman who was being held hostage.

"She seems OK. She was a little shaken up," he told the station, adding the gunman had allowed her to use her cellphone.
