Following a county-wide manhunt for a man suspected of kidnapping a woman and shooting at police in Union Grove, the Women’s Resource Center will have trauma advocates for those effected by the event.

Sheriff Christopher Schmaling told reporters with TMJ 4 that “Sillas abducted a woman from a medical facility in Rochester.”
