The NYPD police were engaged in an hour-long hostage standoff overnight into Wednesday morning after two armed men stormed in a home in Queens located in New York.
Reports say that two suspects who were having a connection with the standoff stormed into a home in Richmond Hill on Tuesday night and held four women in the home and an infant child at gunpoint.
Later the suspects were identified as 35-year-old Tex Ortix and 41-year-old Wilbert Wilson, who stormed into the house in search of a man who lived in the home before his death at the age of 36 due to Cancer and kept a large sum of money there.
As the two men stormed into the home, one of the women in the home called 911. She and the infant. She and the infant were permitted to leave the scene but the suspects kept the remaining hostages in the home for hours as police tried to negotiate with the suspects for their release.
Reports also say that at one point the suspects even asked the police to bring them a pizza. The suspects surrendered at just after 2 a.m. Wednesday and the remaining women who were trapped inside were released unharmed. It’s been also said that the man who died in October had a history of criminal record as well. For now, the suspects are taken under custody and are awaiting the charges.
