Does "two officers emerged" mean "two officers came out from the house"?

Regarding "the officers and several people they had handcuffed",
who had handcuffed the officers and several people?
i.e. Who are "they" of "they had handcuffed"?

Six police officers were shot in a confrontation with at least one gunman Wednesday afternoon in the Tioga section of North Philadelphia, and after nightfall two officers emerged after being trapped for hours in the house where the shootout first erupted at 4:30 p.m.

Just before 10 p.m., Police Commissioner Richard Ross confirmed that the officers and several people they had handcuffed during the tense standoff had been safely extracted from the property in the 3700 block of North 15th Street.

The gunman was still armed and barricaded inside, Ross said.
