Keene hostage situation call believed to be hoax


KEENE - Just before 10:30 Thursday night, police responded to a reported hostage situation at 39 Central Square.

Police say a man called the police department reporting he had a gun and was holding several people hostage in the building. He demanded money and said if he didn't receive the cash, he would begin harming the hostages.

The Keene Police Department Tactical Team was activated and searched the apartment building, finding no suspect and no hostages. At that point, police believed the call was a hoax.

The police continue to investigate who made that call. Anyone with information is asked to call police at 603-357-9813.
