  • Police have searched a home in Austin after a nine-hour standoff, but the carjacking suspect authorities were searching for remains at large.
    Officers arrested two people who left the home Tuesday. But police say a 22-year-old man is still at large.
    Austin Police Chief Brian Krueger (KREE'-gur) says authorities believe the man was involved in a carjacking in Mankato Tuesday morning.
    Seven people exited the home in northwest Austin Tuesday. Two men and two women exited in the morning.
    A child wearing pajamas left the house around 2:25 p.m., followed moments later by a young woman and a man. The Austin Daily Herald reports police handcuffed, searched and arrested those two adults.
    Police had used a loudspeaker to communicate with people inside, and at least twice used flash-bang grenades.
