DENVER (AP) - A judge has set bond at $200,000 apiece for two men accused of holding a hostage during a six-hour armed standoff at a RadioShack store in Denver.
Denver County Court Judge John Marcucci set the bond Saturday for 19-year-old Taveuan Williams and 23-year-old Michael Annan. The men were informed they were being investigated for attempted first-degree murder of a police officer, kidnapping and aggravated robbery.
Investigators say the standoff began as an attempted robbery and ended peacefully Friday afternoon when the suspects released 28-year-old hostage Chris Nimerfroh and surrendered. Police Chief Robert White says one or both suspects fired a weapon during the standoff but no one was injured.
The Denver Post reports neither man spoke at Saturday's hearing, and friends and family members of the two declined to comment afterward.
