6-hour hostage situation within Clinton campaign office ends

According to the Star Tribune:

A man entered into Hilary Rodham Clinton’s campaign office around 1 p.m. Friday in Rochester, New Hampshire wearing what appeared to be a bomb.

Leeland Eisenberg, 47, demanded to speak to the Democratic candidate about access to mental health care.

He took at least five hostages, but let a woman with an infant leave the scene.

The hostage situation lasted for almost six hours until he released five hostages unharmed, walked out of the office and put down what turned out to be road flares, peacefully surrendered, and was arrested shortly thereafter.
