From the Harvey Dent website,
Today’s press conference was unexpectedly cancelled due to a hostage crisis located at a nearby deli. In a selfless move, Mr. Dent entered the premises, exchanged himself for a woman who was being held at gunpoint, and negotiated the successful release of the remaining patrons in the restaurant. Watch this site for updates. We will release more details when they become available.

The hostage situation was instigated by desperate cop, Frank Notaro, he takes a woman hostage before requesting witness protection for him and his family. Harvey Dent exchanges himself for the woman before Notaro is arrested.
This all took place at Rossi’s Deli — Notaro’s madness was tripped in the event of seeing his partners (Cisneros) death in a car explosion, also killing his entire family — all whilst leaving a message on Rossi’s answer phone. Download the voicemail message and listen to the scene
For some back story on Frank Notaro I recommend reading our coverage.
Glenn Barhyte’s email, accessible through the security pages at Gotham Police, has two new messages from Frank:
I saw it. With my own eyes. Best partner I ever had. Dead. What the hell’s going on?
Thank’s For Nothin
Looks like you’re out having breakfast or something. I knew I couldn’t trust IA to keep my family safe. I’m going to Rossi’s Deli to take care of Condoloro myself, don’t try to stop me.
