Explosion during 'domestic' hostage situation in Connecticut injures 6 officers (PHOTOS, VIDEO)

The police "were trying to coax him ... out of the house and really try to calm the situation down".

Freda said the six officers suffered cuts, abrasions and bruises and were taken to Yale New Haven hospital.

"It's quite surprising", Freda said.

The incident began Wednesday afternoon with a domestic violence incident that was reported to North Haven police, said state police Master Sgt. Marc Gelven. He said authorities suspect the barn was rigged to explode. Sounds of smaller explosions also were heard hours later. The explosion took place in the annexe next to the house which held the woman. The man's wife had escaped before the blast.

Up to six police officers were reportedly injured in an explosion in North Haven, Connecticut, where a man took his family hostage after police responded to a domestic dispute call. "The noise from all the emergency vehicles was unbelievable", she said. Authorities were trying to negotiate with the hostage taker for hours before the blast went off. Federal Bureau of Investigation and AFT agents were also called to the scene, according to reports. Police are working to get the suspect out of the house. "If you do not come out immediately you will be subject to arrest".

News 8 reported that police were using a loudspeaker to communicate with a man inside a residence on Quinnipiac Avenue.
