An apparent overnight hostage situation in Eldon has come to an end.
Authorities were called to a home, we believe on South Grand, at 2:42 a.m. Tuesday on a report of a man being held against his will. Police heard the suspects were armed “with guns”.
Authorities could see people inside the home, but no one answered the door or would talk to them. They then backed away from the home, set up a perimeter, and called in some more law enforcement.
Just before they forced their way into the home, several people came out of the house. Eldon Police say the scene is now secure. We don’t know the names of any suspects yet, or have confirmation it actually was a hostage situation.
