MECOSTA TOWNSHIP, Mich., Nov. 22 (UPI) -- A standoff at a home in Mecosta County, Mich., in which several people, including a woman and an infant, were held hostage ended Friday, state police said.

Troopers did not immediately release any details concerning the end of the hostage situation that began Thursday night and dragged into early Friday, WZZM-TV, Grand Rapids, reported.

At one point, Robert Baker told WZZM, eight or nine people were held inside the home in Mecosta Township. Baker said his daughter and infant granddaughter were released before the standoff ended.

Baker said a man stormed the house Thursday night with a gun. Unclear was whether the suspect and the people inside the house knew each other, MLive.com reported.

State police did not release information about what may have led to the standoff.
