Hostage Situation at Clinton Campaign Office Ends Peacefully

Just a quick news update, I know this have been slow on the site, but it seems like every time I say I’m going to start blogging more, things at school get busy. Anyway, there was a scare at a Clinton campaign office in NH today, that, thankfully, ended without injury. From the AP:

“ROCHESTER, N.H. – A distraught man wearing what appeared to be a bomb walked into a Hillary Rodham Clinton campaign office Friday and demanded to speak to the candidate during a hostage drama that dragged on for nearly six hours before he peacefully surrendered.

Shortly after releasing the last of at least four hostages, Leeland Eisenberg walked out of the storefront office, put down a homemade bomb-like package and was immediately surrounded by SWAT team with guns drawn.

The suspect — clad in gray slacks, white dress shirt and a red tie — was put on the ground, handcuffed and taken two blocks to the police office in the back of a tactical response vehicle.

The man walked into the office shortly before 1 p.m. and took several hostages, police and witnesses said. He let a woman with an infant go immediately and at least one other woman got out about two hours later.”

Seconds before he surrendered, shortly after 6 p.m., the last hostage walked from the office. The hostage then ran down the street toward the police roadblocks surrounding Clinton’s office.

Police said earlier no one had been injured, and that appeared to still be true at the end.

A good end to a bad situation, best wishes to all involved.
