Below is the original post.

HARRISBURG, Ill. - A hostage situation has been reported going on at apartments in the Barnett Street area of Harrisburg.

According to officials, a man entered an apartment there, struck a male in the head with a pistol, and held those present hostage.

The man who was pistol-whipped has gotten away, as have two females in the apartment. However, there are two other women in the upstairs of the apartment in question.

Authorities, acting on the word of the pistol-whipped man, obtained a search warrant and made entry to the apartment, securing the bottom floor. The male with the pistol is still present in the upstairs location with the two women, this as of 7 p.m.

Authorities have called ILEAS SWAT team, as the man refused to speak with anyone outside the apartment for hostage negotiating. Hopefully, the ILEAS team will be able to talk him out.

This is all we know right now, but if you're in the area, feel free to tell us what you're seeing or hearing. This is a very serious situation, so PLEASE be cautious if you're in the area.
