Police: Armed suspect shot by officer at Sharonville hotel was holding daughter hostage Police have identified a man who was hospitalized after an officer-involved shooting at a Sharonville hotel on Tuesday. The shooting took place around 2:30 a.m. when police and a SWAT team responded to the Sonesta Extended Stay Suites on East Kemper Road for a "trouble run." Police said they got a call from a woman who said she was being held hostage by her father. Police said while they were securing the building, the armed suspect attempted to leave and was shot several times by a Sharonville police officer. The suspect, Duane Harrison, 53, was taken to UC Medical Center in critical condition. The daughter is expected to be OK.

In addition to the sexual battery charges, police said Guerrero is facing federal child pornography charges. Mallory also confirmed pending federal charges at Guerrero's arraignment.

Police said he had plans to leave for Guatemala and "will leave the country if released."

While discussing bond for Guerrero, Mallory told his lawyers, “You realize I’m going to hold him.”

His lawyer requested a reasonable bond anyway saying he was not a flight risk.

“I can’t do that,” Mallory said.

Guerrero is being held on a $300,000 bond.
