Video: Deputies Investigate Hostage Situation at Clay Co. Home

CLAY COUNTY, Miss. (WCBI) – Deputies are wrapping things up at a home along Highway 46 in Cedar Bluff in Clay County, after a hostage situation that lasted several hours.

WCBI spoke with Sheriff Eddie Scott, who explained what happened.

“I received a call around 5:30 p.m. that a subject had his uncle pinned up in a trailer and had firearms. During the course of the night, the hostage managed to get free, and was not hurt in the incident. The suspect has been captured and has been taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries at this time. I want to thank the Lowndes County SWAT teams, Sheriff Mike Arledge for sending his people over here to assist us. Without them being here, it might could have went a different way.”

Deputies say they’re still investigating.

WCBI is following this story, and will bring you more information as it becomes available.
