Two of 169 passengers and five crew members were still held hostage at a Jamaican airport early Monday local time, CNN reported.

Passengers were reportedly taken hostage when they were boarding the Can Jet flight from Scangster International Airport in Montego Bay to Canada late Sunday when the security breach occurred, CNN quoted Radio Jamaica as saying.

All but two of 169 passengers were released later, Radio Jamaica said.

The report said a shot had been fired, but no one was hit.

Police and security personnel were handling the incident, the report said, adding that negotiations were underway.

A passenger, Brenda Grenier, called her husband and said a man apparently had sneaked aboard the plane and had taken hostages, according to CNN.

Grenier and her daughter were safe, her husband said by phone from his home in Nova Scotia, Canada, CNN said.
