Police have blocked off roads and positioned dozens of officers and federal agents around a credit union where at least one suspect has taken hostages, CBS reports.
Tuscaloosa Police Lt. Teena Richardson told CBS News that at least one armed suspect entered the Alabama Credit Union branch at around 8:30 a.m., before the opening of business. It is believed that the suspect had planned to rob the credit union.
An unknown number of employees were inside the credit union at the time, and have been taken hostage, Richardson said. No customers were inside the business.
“Negotiators are trying to establish contact with the suspect at this time,” Richardson said.
