A hostage situation in downtown Buffalo has come to an end. Three hostages who had been inside a Broadway pawnshop near the Central Library emerged unharmed from the building shortly before 2 p.m. The suspect, described by police as "distraught," shot and killed himself. 

A domestic incident call on the city's East Side turned into a hostage situation just before noon, on Sunday.  Buffalo Police responded to the 200 block of Leroy Avenue, where a woman with a gun was holding a handful of relatives - including young children - captive inside the home.
