SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Sacramento police say an armed man who held two women hostage inside a Jack in the Box restaurant has been shot and the women have been released unharmed.
Officer Doug Morse said the suspected gunman was taken to a hospital after being shot during Saturday's standoff with SWAT officers.
His condition was not immediately known.
The Sacramento Bee reports (http://bit.ly/12eqXjM) police surrounded the restaurant after receiving reports of an armed robbery inside. Two women in the restaurant were held hostage, but one was released about 2 hours later. The other woman ran out after police fired several shots and detonated three concussion grenades.
Nearby businesses were evacuated, some locked down, during the standoff.
