2 detained after Newark standoff

NEWARK, Calif.

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.
