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.

Multiple agencies, including the Geneva Police Department, the Kane County Sheriff's office and SWAT teams, responded to the incident, surrounding the scene as it developed.

The standoff began around 12:30 p.m., when Salters snatched a gun from a corrections officer at the hospital about 40 miles west of Chicago. The hostage, a nurse, apparently was not injured, he said.

Salters was booked into the Kane County Jail on March 11 and ordered held on $75,000 bail, according to jail records.
