EL SEGUNDO (CNS) – A woman with a gun walked into her place of employment in El Segundo today, ordered people out of the building and apparently took a company executive hostage, prompting an hours-long standoff, police said.

Police went to the 1300 block of East El Segundo Boulevard about 8:20 a.m., El Segundo police Capt. Bob Turnbull said.

No injuries were immediately reported, but the standoff was continuing nearly two hours later.

KNX Newsradio reported that the business was a gourmet popcorn company, and the hostage was the company’s chief financial officer.
