A Toppenish man appears in Yakima County Court after holding people in a home hostage last week.

Richard Yallup was arrested last week after police say he held a family hostage in a home outside of Granger.

Yallup exchanged gunfire with police and shot a woman in the home -- he was taken down by the hostages while SWAT teams tried to negotiate with him.

Yallup is facing multiple charges, including assault, robbery, and kidnapping -- bail is set at two million dollars.
