2 detained after Newark standoff
NEWARK, Calif. -- Police are questioning at least two suspects in a violent carjacking Thursday morning in Fremont.
They were taken into custody late Thurday afternoon after a nearly eight hour standoff at a home in Newark.
The heavily armed SWAT team searched the house, and then surrounded a backyard shed. They stormed it after firing what appeared to be smoke bombs.
The carjack victim was dragged from his car and beaten at about 3 a.m. Thurday, but authorities say he's OK.
