Hostage situation underway at Delnor Hospital
Authorities say officers have fatally shot an armed jail inmate who had taken a worker hostage at an IL hospital. While the specifics were still under investigation, McMahon said Salter moved down to the ground floor to a small room near the hospital's emergency room, taking another nurse into custody. Salters, who was charged with stealing a vehicle from the Elgin Police Department, was being retreated at the hospital since May 9.
The second nurse appeared to be physically OK, Gengler said.
