Gunman Surrenders In Illinois Standoff
Of all places for these two travelling gunman with blacked-out windows get holed-up?
In the Amish community of Arcola- about 180 miles south of Chi-town.
The passenger of the suspect's car- and possible shooter of a sheriff's deputy- is taken into custody when their car crashed after a police pursuit. The driver ran into the nearby Arcola bank and took hostages.
By late Thursday afternoon- all the hostages had been released unharmed and the last gunman surrendered.
That deputy shot was reportedly in critical- but stable condition.
