BREAKING: Hostage Situation Unfolding Near University of Alabama

Police are responding to a hostage situation at the main office of the Alabama Credit Union near the University of Alabama Law School.

Unconfirmed reports indicate there may be as many as seven hostages being held by one gunman inside the bank.

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.
