There are 5 children and 2 adults being being held hostage in Harvey, IL, after a home burglary went wrong. Two Harvey police officers were shot while responding to a call about a home invasion. I spoke with the parents of the children on the phone and they were scared to death and worried about what the police intended to do to bring their children out alive.
The children have been held hostage for over 5 hours. They range in age of 1 to 12 years. Twin 1 year old boys a 2 year old boy a 7 year old and 12 year old girl.
