NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Police in a five-hour long standoff at a housing project in lower Manhattan have determined the suspect was not there.

Cops said a warrant squad went to 40 Madison St. in search of a 31-year-old suspect who refused to come out at about 8 a.m. on Wednesday.

Hours later officers on the scene said the man's mother and other family members were inside the apartment but not the suspect, according to police.

As many as four people including children were believed to have been inside and refused to let police in.

"Younger voices (were heard) in there," added Browne.

Cops taped-off the entrance to the apartment building. It is not clear if the suspect lives in the building.

The man is facing possible indictment in the death of Pace University student Max Moreno in September 2010.

Moreno was killed inside 2 Gold Street in lower Manhattan in a narcotics related hit, said Browne.

    New York's smallest piece of private land

    The Hess triangle is a tiny piece of private property in Greenwich Village. Manhattan historian Joyce Gold explained the origins of the property: After World War I, New York City seized a beautiful residence and tore it down so it could extend Seventh Avenue and the west side subway below it. The city left the building's owner only a tiny scrap of property so small it requested he donate the triangle to make way for a sidewalk. The man refused, took the city to court and won.
