A hostage situation in Pueblo ends peacefully.

Pueblo Police say a woman and her son, 4, were held hostage in their apartment this afternoon in the 500 block of west 11th Street. 

The suspect, Ryan May, 29, was wanted on a felony prison warrant.  Police also say May's girlfriend was in the apartment with him.

SWAT was called in and arrested May.

A witness tells Newschannel 13 she saw 3 people taken away in handcuffs.  Police have not commented on any other arrests.

We're working to get more information on the victims and their condition, the status of May's girlfriend, and the motive behind the hostage situation.
