TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Oro Valley Police have released the 911 recordings from an April SWAT standoff, where the suspect took a hostage, then took his own life.

Investigators say 36-year-old Steven Wahl fled from a traffic stop and then broke into at least two homes before getting into a 14-hour standoff with OVPD.

Pima County Sheriff's Department deputies were attempting to pull Wahl over in a traffic stop, when he fled the scene and broke into first one home and then another.  According to officials it was in the second home that he allegedly held a girl hostage at gunpoint. 

In the recordings the girl's mother can be heard pleading with the alleged gunman to not shoot her daughter.  According to OVPD the mother had been on the phone with dispatch when Wahl allegedly broke into her home.
