ROCHESTER, NY -- It sounds like something out of the movies. Over the weekend a couple of University of Rochester students were kidnapped, held hostage, and rescued by SWAT. One of them was shot in the process.

“There is a collective sense of relief tonight that all of us feel. This could have turned out in a very different way," says University of Rochester President Joel Seligman.

Police say four people are in custody and more arrests may come. They think the victims were targeted, but why this happened remains unclear.

Both students are said to be okay.
