A SWAT team stormed a Harvey, Ill., home Wednesday morning, rescuing two women and two children and arresting two suspects in a dramatic end to a nearly 21-hour standoff.

The officers took down the front door and found the hostages and the two men holding them on the second floor, according to Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart, who said no shots were fired and no one was injured.
