Police: Fort Wayne hostage situation tied to shooting suspect

FORT WAYNE, Ind.— Police say a hostage situation in Fort Wayne may be linked to the shooting of a city bus passenger earlier in the day.

Police say they have reason to believe the suspect from today shooting is in a nearby home.

WANE-TV reports police and SWAT teams are at the home a few miles from where the shooting occurred. Officers in a hostage rescue tank are asking the man barricaded in one of the homes to call 911.

Officers are searching for a man they say pulled a woman off of a city bus and fatally shot her along a busy city street. The gunman fled the scene on foot and a police dog tracked him to a nearby neighborhood.
