A gunman is holding hostages. I have friends in there. Police, FBI, Swat teams. They say the gunman has a bullet proof vest. Pray this ends peacefully. It's been two hours.

Julie - praying this turns out safely for all involved. Like MotherTeresa said - these bank robberies are almost becoming routine anymore. Very scary for the innocents involved.

How frightening it must have been for those in the bank. I am so glad all are okay. We've done business with these people since starting our restaurant 9 years ago. They are all wonderful folks. Helicopters still flying overhead, FBI and 100's of police. No word yet on the gunman.

You stay safe, too, Julie! Sounds like you are close to the bank location.

It's just a few blocks from here. They just reported the are searching the building with some type of robotic device. Some of the reporters were wondering if the gunman may have done himself in. There is no way out but I have not heard any reports of shots fired. There was talk he had a bulletproof vest. I will feel better when he is located. I don't think he could have gotten out but the thought of an armed, desperate man in the neighborhood is scary to think of. I'll keep you posted. The important thing is everyone so far is okay and will be going home tonight.

Chicago Bank Standoff Ends Peacefully

POSTED: 11:54 am CDT August 30, 2007
UPDATED: 1:33 pm CDT August 30, 2007


CHICAGO -- A standoff at a bank on Chicago's north side has ended peacefully, but authorities are still searching the First Commercial Bank for the gunman, according to the FBI.

Chicago Police spokeswoman Monique Bond said no arrests have been made.

The FBI said all of the hostages have been released and no injuries have been reported.


The FBI had said it thought at least one bank robber was holding six hostages, believed to be a combination of employees and customers.

Acting Chicago Police Superintendent Dana Starks said the situation began when officers responded to a call about a bank robbery. The bank was open at the time.

The FBI said that it has noticed a sharp increase in bank robberies in the Chicago area as many new branches continue to pop up.

The bank is in Chicago's Rogers Park neighborhood at 6945 N. Clark Street.

it's crazy out there

some dude threatened to blow up the Local Walmart last night.

Probably a local merchant forced out of business.

Just got back. Chicago police and FBI have indicated the gunman got away. I heard they were reviewing footage of the hostages leaving the bank to determine if he walked out with them. I heard talk he entered in the back door. They will not release more until they interview everyone in the bank and review survelance video. Good thing is no one was hurt but there is an armed man on the loose. Currently they are not even releasing a description. Scary stuff.

I hope the bag em and tag em. Something has got to be done to stop these
idiots. Anyone who takes hostages should be taken away and shot. They
will eventually get out of jail and do it again.

A friend of mine witnessed a bank robbery (he was in the car while his mom was in the bank) in CA.
