Heavily armed police concluded a search of a large, earthquake-hit building Saturday morning without finding a gunman who earlier disarmed a guard, held him hostage, then let him go unhurt. "He must've somehow snuck out of there," said Officer Farrell Suslow. Five people died in the old unreinforced brick building when the quake hit Oct. 17.

Braving gunfire from drug dealers, a 21-year-old woman and two friends sneaked into a fortified Oakland "rock house" to rescue a cousin being held hostage for failing to pay a $50 drug debt, police said Wednesday.
