    The Latest: Police: 7-Year-Old Among Hostages in Restaurant

    Baltimore Police say a 7-year-old is among those being held hostage at a Burger King restaurant.

    Police spokesman T.J. Smith said in a news conference Sunday that "about four" people are in the restaurant with an armed suspect who fled from police.

    Smith said the suspect is wanted on a rape charge and led police on a vehicle chase earlier Sunday before crashing into another vehicle and then fleeing by foot into the Burger King in Southwest Baltimore. Smith said the driver of the other car is being treated for minor injuries.

    SWAT team and negotiators are at the scene and police are asking the public to avoid the area.

    The Latest on a barricade situation in Baltimore (all times local):

    4 p.m.

    Baltimore police say two people have been released at an ongoing hostage situation at a Burger King restaurant.

    Police spokesman T.J. Smith said on Twitter that negotiations are ongoing with an armed suspect who barricaded himself in the restaurant Sunday after fleeing police.

    Police earlier said the suspect is wanted on a rape charge and fled from police after they tried to stop him.

    Officers tried to stop the suspect, whom police did not name, to serve him an arrest warrant on the northwest side of the city about 11 a.m., when he sped off and led police on a chase to Washington Boulevard and South Monroe Street near Carroll Park, police said.

    The man crashed into another car at the intersection about 11:30 a.m. and ran inside the fast food restaurant, where he barricaded himself and the hostages, police said.

    Tactical units lined up, guns drawn, along the restaurant's exterior wall. An officer with an assault rifle ordered people to clear Carroll Park. Police taped off the crime scene a block away, and the Foxtrot helicopter unit circled overhead.

    "Our ultimate goal is to end this peacefully for all parties," Baltimore Police Department chief spokesman T.J. Smith said. "We have our negotiators on scene. We have our SWAT team on scene. We've cordoned off the area for safety purposes."

    Ryan Weinberger, 29, of Glen Burnie, said he was in the dining room as the suspect ran into the restaurant..

    The man appeared frantic and was talking on a cellphone, Weinberger said.

    Weinberger said he heard the crash and walked over to the window to take a picture of it when he realized that police were surrounding the restaurant and the man who'd run in was armed.

    He was one of three customers who escaped through a side door after the suspect came in through the front, he said.

    "One of the customers grabbed me and said, 'Get out — run,'" Weinberger said.

    A young girl with pig tails had been playing a game on an iPhone behind the counter while Weinberger ordered his burger, milk shake and onion rings, he said. He assumed she was the child of an employee who couldn't find day care.
