Police were called to the 5000 block of Old Maysville Road on Saturday in reference to a possible barricaded subject with a hostage.

At 11:52 a.m., the Fort Wayne Police Department received a 911 call from a female who said she was being threatened and held hostage by a male inside an apartment. She also informed police the male had handguns, according to a police department news release.

When officers arrived, they could hear the male inside making threats, and also threatening to kill officers if they approached.

The Emergency Services and Crisis Response teams were brought in to negotiate the situation. The male refused to respond or cooperate with police.
