18-Year-Old Allegedly Held 11 People Hostage With A BB Gun

He held his hostages in a credit union across the street from the University of Alabama.

Police arrested an 18-year-old for allegedly holding 11 people hostage at an Alabama credit union branch with a Marksman Repeater BB gun on Tuesday, after he tried unsuccessfully to rob the bank, AP reported.

Cedrick Lamar Collins was charged with robbery and kidnapping charges after a two-hour standoff between the teen and police officers. No one was injured in the incident.

The branch is across the street from the University of Alabama, and university officers handled the situation.

A local outlet reported that Collins had previously been charged for abducting, robbing, and raping a woman in 2015, when he was only 17.

Collins is being held on a $1.26 million bond.
