Hostage situation reported in suburban Chicago bank

The Associated Press

DOLTON, Ill.- An attempted bank robbery turned into a hostage standoff in a Chicago suburb Wednesday with several people trapped inside, authorities said.

Dolton village spokesman Sean Howard said officers had communicated with people inside the bank, but he declined to give specifics or say how many suspects were involved.

He said there were multiple hostages inside the Heritage Community Bank.

Authorities blocked off several streets around the bank as police from at least three towns worked to resolve the situation.
