Trenton Standoff Ends, Hostages Safe

All three New Jersey children held hostage for 36 hours are safe after the standoff ended, Mercer County officials said Sunday. The children, between the ages of 4 and 17, were taken hostage by the man after police discovered his girlfriend and her child had been killed. They were rescued around 4 a.m., and police said there were no injuries to law enforcement. Police said they would release more details at a later press conference.
