A hostage situation in the 400 block of Hooker Street, in Jackson, has ended and no one has been injured. Chief Lee Vance says the man holding the hostages surrendered to police around 10:15 p.m.

Vance says officers were sent to the house on a domestic disturbance call and heard a woman screaming when they arrived. A man slammed the door and barricaded himself in side with a woman and three children.

SWAT and hostage negotiators were activated and after more than an hour, the man surrendered. Police aren't sure right now what charges he will face.
