Authorities find 2 dead in hostage crisis

HUEYTOWN, Ala. (AP) - Authorities say a man and woman have been found dead inside a home in Hueytown.

Police believe the man held his common-law wife, stepdaughter and a 3-year-old hostage.

Officers were called to the residence on Carver Avenue at about 6:45 a.m. today.

A SWAT team entered the house just after 10 a.m. where they found the bodies.

Police said the stepdaughter also was shot and is being treated at a local hospital.

The nature of her injury was not immediately known.

Authorities said the 3-year-old was allowed to leave the house earlier this morning.

The youngster was turned over to the Department of Human Resources.
