A Severe Thunderstorm Watch has been issued for areas west of Omaha until 11 p.m.; however, the metro area will likely have thunderstorms on and off throughout the overnight.
The contingent of officers included k-9 units from Omaha, Council Bluffs and Papillion. The operation was taking place inside the Carol Hotel at 120 and L Streets.
Police did manage to take a suspect into custody. He is identified as Anthony Adams and officers at the scene tell Channel 6 reporter Gary Smollen that Adams is wanted fugitive in Nebraska and Iowa.
As he tried to get away, Adams reportedly climbed into a laundry chute in the hotel and was trying to hide between floors.
