The woman being held a hostage in a shootout with officers early Wednesday morning in Council Bluffs is actually a suspect in two homicides along with the now-deceased man holding her at gunpoint, police now say.

On Thursday morning Council Bluffs Police and the Division of Criminal Investigation laid out the timeline of three seemingly isolated death investigations that they now say are all connected.

The investigation took its next turn early yesterday morning. Pottawattamie County Sheriff's Deputy Ryan Olderog spotted a truck stopped in a rural area with its headlights turned off. As Olderog attempted to initiate a traffic stop, someone in the vehicle fired a gun at the deputy and the truck fled the scene.

20 minutes later two Council Bluffs Police officers spotted the suspect truck and tried to stop it as well. Again someone in the truck fired shots back at the two officers as it tried to evade them. The chase came to an end when the truck lost control and crashed in the 1400 block of Indian Hills Road. Officers approached the vehicle but the driver, 28-year-old Troy Peterson of Essex, told them he was holding his passenger, 44-year-old April Montello-Roberts, hostage at gunpoint.
