RS Source Jay: ” A single tenant of a ground floor apartment reported his mother was being held hostage by a man with a gun. Later he claimed the man was his father and 7 people were in the apartment. No other person was found. The tenant was taken to a local hospital for observation. There were no injuries and R.P.D. cleared after roughly an hour. “
