ROCHESTER, N.H. -- A five-hour standoff at a Hillary Rodham Clinton campaign office in New Hampshire is over, with no apparent injuries.

Police have arrested Leeland Eisenberg, who is suspected of taking hostages at the Rochester office. He peacefully surrendered shortly after 6 p.m. Eastern time Friday.

Authorities say the drama began when a distraught man wearing what appeared to be a bomb walked into the office and demanded to speak to the Democratic presidential candidate.

Shortly after releasing the last of at least four hostages, Eisenberg walked out of the storefront office this evening and was immediately surrounded by SWAT team with guns drawn.

Clinton and her husband have canceled all their appearances and security around the former first lady has been tightened.
