JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA (FOX) – A suspect with a criminal history stormed a bank in Florida and took 11 hostages during a standoff that lasted hours before he surrendered, police said Thursday.
Nicholas Daquan Humphrey, 23, pointed his gun at hostages’ heads and made a series of demands, investigators in Jacksonville said.
Sheriff Mike Williams told reporters the demands included money and bringing family members to the scene at the Community First Credit Union.
One of the hostages texted a friend to say the suspect appeared nervous, Fox 30 reported.
It was unclear whether anybody was hurt. Investigators denied initial reports that people were shot. Officers used a battering ram to break down the bank’s front door as the standoff ended.
