Question of the Day
Hostage standoff ends
SOUTH WINDSOR — A Connecticut man who held his ex-wife hostage for hours and then refused to leave their burning home has been taken away in an ambulance.
The woman is out safely.
Firefighters surrounding the burning home say Richard Shenkman was in custody and was taken away early Wednesday morning. There’s no immediate word from police or a description of Shenkman’s condition.
Shenkman kept police at bay for hours Tuesday. Police say he abducted his estranged wife outside her Hartford office. He missed a court hearing Tuesday morning related to the couple’s contentious divorce proceeding, which extended three years.

“She walked in with a box of personal items and placed it on the counter,” Mr. Whitmore said.
He declined to describe the items because they are part of the investigation into the 9 p.m. Monday shooting at the Santa Clarita station.
A pregnant deputy tried to help Detective Clemmer before the shooting, but Detective Clemmer wouldn’t talk to her, Mr. Whitmore said. A male deputy did have a conversation with Detective Clemmer.
