Trenton Hostage Standoff Continues; Two Dead, Children still hostage on second day
  by: iradioal - Philadelphia, PA

A hostage standoff in Trenton, NJ has gone over 24 hours. Two people are dead inside the home on the 200 block of Grand Street and multiple children are being held hostage inside. It continues as of 8:00 pm Saturday.

UPDATE: Officers stormed the house at 3:45 a.m. on Sunday. The man was shot to death. Three children were rescued and two bodies were recovered.

The hostage situation began around 3:30 pm on Friday when police responded to the home after calls from concerned neighbors. When officers arrived on the wellness check they found the man was carrying a gun and saw the decomposing body of a woman. They backed out of the door and called SWAT. The suspect has barricaded himself inside the home but has been in communication with FBI negotiators and authorities throughout the night and day on Saturday. A woman and teenager (mother and child) are believed to be deceased inside. There are other children also inside the house as the hostage standoff continues. The gunman is the boyfriend of the mother. Nearby residents have been evacuated as a precaution and several roads are shutdown.
