Sat 5:31pm: NJ cops say gunman in daylong standoff has hostages
TRENTON, N.J. – Tensions appear to be rising at a New Jersey home where an armed man has held multiple hostages for more than a day.
Family members of a woman believed to be among the hostages in the Trenton home went under police tape and briefly confronted officers about the situation late Saturday afternoon. They’re angry that the standoff has dragged on since Friday afternoon.
Trenton police have declined to give any details on the number of people being held, their ages or relationship to the armed man.
Police were called to the home before 3 p.m. Friday on reports that a man had barricaded himself inside.
Authorities said police entered the home and found the man brandishing a gun. Police retreated safely and called in a SWAT team.
