FORT WAYNE, Ind. -- Police say four workers hid inside a Fort Wayne post office for more than two hours after two masked gunmen entered the building.

The gunmen were no longer inside when officers entered the building Wednesday evening. City police spokeswoman Raquel Foster tells WANE-TV that officers surrounded the post office and treated it as a possible hostage scene since a worker calling from a safe area didn't know whether the gunmen were still inside.
