Authorities in Columbus County say they are negotiating with a Chadbourn man who has barricaded himself in a hotel with a woman he abducted.
Columbus County Sheriff Chris Batten says the man abducted a Tabor City woman last night. Investigators say the man is armed with a gun but no shots have been fired. Batten says the sheriff's SWAT team has been on the scene since midnight Wednesday after the woman was able to call her parents.
S-B-I agents began negotiations with the gunman around one a-m Wednesday.
