Terrorism is a threat, but crazy people with guns are a greater threat.
Authorities continued to negotiate a surrender with a gunman holding three children hostage in a New Jersey home since Friday, after cops say he killed their mother and a 13-year-old brother.
The armed suspect, who has not been identified by police, barricaded himself in the South Trenton home he had shared with the victim, Carmen Kelly, 42, and her five children. The victim’s two daughters, ages 14 and 17, and a 4-year-old son are believed to be still alive in the house at 250 Grand Street.
Her 19-year-old son, who is autistic, had been staying with relatives.
