Sean Sharpe was waiting inside his ex-girlfriend’s home in Newark when she and their 11-year-old daughter returned home just after 9 p.m. The woman had an active restraining order against Sharpe. Sharpe forced the woman and his daughter out of the house at gunpoint, but his daughter was able to escape and call police. Sharpe held the woman hostage for more than seven hours while police tried to end the crisis with non-lethal methods. At about 5:30 a.m., Sharpe pointed his gun at his ex-girlfriend’s head and then at police, who shot and killed him.
