JACKSON, Tenn. - Jackson Police and SWAT units surrounded the Econo Lodge in North Jackson around 6:00 a.m., Sunday.

Officers said a tip led them to believe a wanted suspect had barricaded himself inside one of the rooms with a possible hostage.

Hotel employees said law enforcement blocked off all exits and worked their way up to the room in question.

But once the team got to the room, it was empty.

Officials searched the motel and surrounding area, but made no arrests.
