UPDATED @ 11:00 AM

According to (WBRC) Tuscaloosa police confirm that a suspect is in custody in a hostage situation at a Tuscaloosa credit union. 

No one was injured after the armed suspect entered the Alabama Credit Union on Paul Bryant Drive around 8:30 a.m. and held at least eight people hostage for two hours. 

The incident began as a robbery and escalated into a hostage situation, according to Tuscaloosa Chief of Police Steven D. Anderson.

No customers were in the building at the time. 

Tuscaloosa Mayor Walt Maddox thanked law enforcement for their work in ending the incident. 

"This could have been a very dangerous situation and it had a lot of variables," he said 

The Tuscaloosa Sheriff's Department, University of Alabama Police Department and the FBI assisted in the operation. 

Authorities were able to breach the building once they determined that the suspect was not in the same part of the business as the hostages, according to Chief Anderson.  

The suspect is in custody....
