SEATTLE, Wash. — A 13-hour police standoff in Kent ended Saturday evening with a convicted felon in custody after he released four children, police said.
The man's mother and four children — ages 3, 8, 11 and 12 — were inside the home when the man and police arrived. The woman and one child left the house early Saturday. About 11:20 a.m., police negotiators convinced the man to release the other three children, who are not his, Merrill said.
