SHARONVILLE (AP) — Police said an armed man accused of holding his adult daughter against her will has been shot and injured by a police officer.

Sharonville police said officers responded around 12:30 a.m. Tuesday to a reported hostage situation at a hotel in the Cincinnati suburb. Police said a 53-year-old man had barricaded himself inside a hotel room with his daughter.

Authorities say the man left the room around 2:30 a.m. armed with a handgun and was confronted by police.

Police Lt. Walter Cordes said a Sharonville officer fired three rounds, striking the man, who was hospitalized in critical condition. Neither the officer nor the man's daughter was injured.

Police said charges were expected to be filed against the man.

The Hamilton County Sheriff's Office will handle the investigation.
