Bank robbery gone bad? Poor student in debt up to his eyeballs with the cost of education? In all seriousness though, hope this turns out well for the hostages. Gotta be a pretty scary situation to be in.

Can't find much, other than its not a robbery from what i read on google. Classes are not in session for a few days so that's probably a good thing. I should clarify fox news says it's not a robbery, and it appears this situation started either before the c.u. Opened or right at opening time.

So sad. I lived there for many years going to school and working. Great town - this kind of thing can happen anywhere I guess.

Very little info.
One article said bank employees were being held hostage with no customers in the bank.
Also heard, initially, it was a robbery gone bad.
