The hostage situation outside Chicago finally comes to an end nearly 20 hours after it began.
Police say two men tried to rob a home in Harvey, Illinois Tuesday but ended up holding two women and several small children hostage.
Some of them were released last night - the rest weren't freed until the SWAT team forced their way in.
No one was hurt in all this, but authorities say the kids were all very shaken up and scared by the suspects and all the armed officers outside.
