Breaking News: Man takes hostages at Clinton campaign office

Let's all hope for a peaceful outcome.

A man claiming to have a bomb was holding one or more hostages at Hillary Clinton's campaign office Friday, police said.

The man had what appeared to be a bomb strapped to himself, said Bill Shaheen, a top state campaign official. The two hostages were volunteers, Shaheen said.

Clinton was not believed to be in the office at the time.

Authorities were sending a tactical bomb unit to assist local police, and the area was evacuated, said Maj. Michael Hambrook of New Hampshire State Police. A nearby school also was in lockdown.
