Authorities say they responded to a 911 call about a robbery in progress about 9 p.m. Thursday.

That suspect was shot. The hostage was not hurt, but the second suspect got away.

No details about the hostage have been released.

Friel says a preliminary investigation shows the officer was justified in shooting the suspect.

Police say the suspect is being treated for non-life threatening injuries.
