UPDATE @ 4:22 p.m. (Jan. 18):

Dayton police said they believe a Facebook Live video posted during the standoff involved the people they were trying to get to come out of the Elsmere Avenue home.

In the video you see the suspects walking throughout the home and you can hear police banging on the door, asking the suspects to come out.

“You’re ordered to leave the apartment now; come out the front door with your hands up,” hostage negotiators said, at one point using a bull horn.

“Told you, we’re not leaving,” one suspect said during the Facebook Live. 

The names of the suspects have not been released.
