No charges filed after standoff with police in Lincoln Park

Five people — including three newborn babies — were stabbed at an overnight day care center inside a New York City home early Friday, and a woman who had slashed her wrist and was found in the basement was taken into custody, police said. The victims were listed in critical but stable condition.

No charges were file after three people were taken for questioning Sunday afternoon following an hours-long standoff with police in the North Side Lincoln Park community.

Officers initially responded about 8 a.m. to a call of a person with a gun inside a home in the 2400 block of North Clybourn, Chicago police said. Shortly after, a second caller said there were multiple armed people inside the home, and that one of them had hit a woman with a gun.

Just before 3 p.m., a SWAT team was able to make contact with the people inside the home, police said. Three people were taken into custody and later released without charges.

No one was hurt, police said.

Area North Detectives are investigating.
