A SWAT team stormed into an Indianapolis home early Friday, for the rescue of three hostages who had been taken prisoner by an armed suspect, reports said.

The defendant had previously led the police on a car chase after trying to escape after a 1 hour traffic to stop, WRTV-TV of Indianapolis reported. The defendant eventually left his car and ran to the house.

SWAT negotiators were able to communicate with a woman in the house who said that the suspect would not let her leave, the station reported.

An officer using a megaphone around 4:30 pm demanded that the suspect leave, WISH-TV reported. But the suspect didn’t seem to have worked.

With the help of a diversionary device, the SWAT team burst into the house, WRTV reported. The three hostages — two female and one male — were rescued safely, the report said.

The suspect involved in the chase was taken into custody. A second suspect, possibly previously acquainted with the shooter, was taken into custody on a possible out-of-county warrants, according to reports.
