WITTENBERG, WI (WTAQ) - Authorities in Shawano County say a hostage situation has come to an end peacefully.

The Wisconsin State Patrol says several law enforcement agencies were called to the McDonald's in the Village of Wittenberg Tuesday afternoon because of a robbery.

Cops say the suspect kept one person inside. After some time, the State Patrol indicates the suspect surrendered to a negotiator and was arrested.

No one was hurt. Both the high school and elementary school in Wittenberg were locked down as a precaution.
