REDLANDS, Calif. (AP) - Authorities have surrounded a gunman they say took his ex-girlfriend hostage and wounded someone at an Office Depot in Redlands.

Police Chief Mark Garcia says a man and woman apparently were arguing inside the store Thursday afternoon when the man pulled a gun and fired at the woman, grazing a bystander's finger. That person is expected to recover.

The man then grabbed the girlfriend and ran to a nearby street, where he is holding her hostage.

Police tell the Redlands Daily Facts that they have cordoned off the area and are negotiating with the man.
