Marc and Kim Jacobs are visiting the Friendly City for a weekend getaway, celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary.

The couple had just returned from a Wheeling Nailers game and were waiting on their pizza to arrive when the chaos broke out.

All occupants in the hotel, including the Jacobs, were transported to Woodsdale Elementary via shuttles to wait out the search.

After several hours of inspection, authorities found no evidence and the hunt was called off around 2:15 a.m.

However, no one was allowed back until after 3 a.m. when the parking lot was clear of law enforcement vehicles.

They did a good job.
