Suspected Killer Holding Young Child Hostage

Indiana police say a man is holding a three-year-old child hostage hours after he killed a woman he had pulled off of a city bus.

Police say the suspect is holed up with the child in a house in Fort Wayne.

He is suspected of having pulled a female passenger from the bus at 8 am on Wednesday, then fatally shooting her about 25 feet away in front of multiple witnesses.

He then fled on foot into a nearby neighbourhood, where he locked himself in a house with the toddler.

The suspect's relationship to the woman and to the child being held hostage is unclear.

The shooting victim is described as a young adult. She and the suspect had been riding on the bus at the same time, but it is not yet clear whether they were companions.

However police Spokeswoman Raquel Foster said the shooting is not believed to be random, and that police "have a good idea of who [they are] looking for".

Police: Ind. Bus Shooting Suspect Holding Child Hostage

UPDATED: Wednesday March 20, 2013 4:08 PM

FORT WAYNE, Ind. - Police in northern Indiana say officers have gathered around a home where a man suspected of killing a bus passenger earlier in the day is holding a child hostage.

Police spokeswoman Raquel Foster tells The Journal Gazette that the suspect is holed up in a Fort Wayne house near the street where a woman was pulled off a bus and fatally shot earlier Wednesday. She says he is holding a 3-year-old child hostage.

The relationship between the suspect, the victim and the child wasn't immediately known.

Police confirmed the hostage situation about five hours after a man pulled a woman off a city bus in crowded traffic about 8 a.m. and fatally shot her about 25 feet away before fleeing into the surrounding neighborhood.
