Hillary Clinton spoke with reporters about the hostage situation at her campaign office in Rochester, NH, following the alleged suspect, Leeland Eisenberg, being taken into custody. The nearly six-hour hostage drama ended with the suspect surrendering peacefully.
The man walked into the Clinton campaign office at around 1 p.m. and took several people hostage. He almost immediately let a woman with an infant go, and released another hostage within the next two hours. Right before being surrounded by SWAT team members he let the last of the at least four hostages leave the office. The hostages were reported to be campaign volunteers, the Clinton campaign reported.
It is believed the suspect entered the campaign office demanding to speak to Clinton. It is not known what it was he wanted to talk about.
