    Trumbull County Jail


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     antonvzw took this video of police officers surrounding the Trumbull County Jail in Ohio, where a corrections officer was taken hostage by three inmates on Wednesday.

    According to WKBN, the corrections officer was grabbed from behind by three inmates while conducting his rounds; they took his radio and his phone. More than 100 law enforcement officials, including the FBI, were at the scene, the report says.

    The officer, who is in his 30s, was released unharmed just before 9 p.m. Wednesday night, WKBN says.

    antonvzw told us that he was standing outside the Trumbull County Jail when he shot this video. He was at home working when he first saw the breaking news. "I wanted to see it all unfold firsthand," he said.
