Hostage Standoff Reported in Charlotte, North Carolina

Aired May 5, 2000 - 9:47 a.m. ET

THIS IS A RUSH TRANSCRIPT. THIS COPY MAY NOT BE IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED.

DARYN KAGAN, CNN ANCHOR: On a much more serious note, we are now following a breaking news situation out of Charlotte, North Carolina, where we understand a man has gone into a medical building and taken hostages.

There pictures coming to us from our affiliate WSOC in Charlotte.

As we understand it, the man walked into this medical building around 8:30 a.m. this morning. He apparently was wearing fatigues and is holding some number of hostages at this point. We're not exactly sure how many. We have not heard any reports of shooting. Police, SWAT team members are on the scene. We will continue to monitor the situation out of Charlotte and bring you more information as we gather it.
