Hostage Situation and Stand Off in Jackson

Jackson Police are trying to figure out whether anyone was ever being held hostage in a house where they’d earlier believed a man was holding about a dozen people.
Jackson Police Chief Lee Vance called the situation “bizarre” in a news conference with reporters after the six-hour incident ended just before noon.
The standoff on Greenview Drive and McDowell Road involved over a dozen people in South Jackson.
“We’re still debriefing, talking to the individuals that were in there. Trying to gather information going all the way back to when we got the original call. So we’ve got a lot to do on this, but we are making steady progress and again, the most important thing is getting everyone out of that house,” said Chief Vance.
No one was injured in the incident and police are still investigating what exactly took place in the home.
