Family Taken Hostage in Prince George's County


Eight members of a family were taken hostage in a private residence in Prince George's County during an incident family members say stemmed from a relationship breakup. Police have not released the name or age of the suspect.

The standoff began at around 10 p.m. on September 14th at a home on Ritchboro Road in Capitol Heights. The suspect's 18-year-old former girlfriend was one of the eight hostages, according to family members who spoke to press. The woman's relatives say the nine-hour long hostage drama began when her uncle attempted to force the gun-wielding man from the home after he "stormed in."
