      Last 4 hostages freed in suburban Chicago standoff

      HARVEY, Ill. (AP) - A hostage situation in suburban Chicago has ended.

      About two dozen heavily armed law enforcement officers stormed a home in Harvey to free four remaining hostages and capture the two suspects.

      The Cook County sheriff says not a shot was fired and there were no injuries in today's operation.

      The standoff began more than 20 hours earlier when police in the small city responded to a neighbor's report of a possible burglary at the home.

      Two officers were wounded yesterday in an initial exchange of gunfire.
