Police Shoot Gunman in City Hostage Standoff

A gunman who held his girlfriend hostage for more than five hours Tuesday in a Lansing motel room was shot and injured after police stormed the room.

The gunman, who police did not identify, was taken to a local hospital with unknown injuries. The woman, who police also did not identify, was not injured.

At about 2 p.m., a bounty hunter, who was looking for another woman, knocked on the door of the ground-floor room at the Super 8 Motel off South Cedar Street, but was not allowed in, said Janelle Hathaway, 22, of Lansing, who identified herself as the bounty hunter's sister. He then walked around to an outside window and saw the man with a gun, she said.
