Wed., 8:50 pm: Trumbull jail hostage released safely

April 23, 2014
Tribune Chronicle

Sheriff Thomas Altiere said a hostage negotiator helped reach a peaceful conclusion to a situation at the Trumbull County Jail where three inmates have been holding a corrections officer hostage since just after 3 p.m. today. Inmates Kevin Johns, David Martin and Richard Ware were armed with a homemade weapon.

No one was injured and Altiere said the inmates were demanding to be relocated away from the local jail.

A tactical team from Cleveland as well the FBI and a myriad of local police departments were on the scene most of the day.

Altiere said more details will be released following a complete investigation.
