“The police had surrounded the house. They had been there for quite a while. They didn’t want to try to rush the house because they thought he might kill one of the innocent people. But after waiting for a long time, I asked the police: ‘Let me see if I can talk to the guy.’”

For decades, TV news reporter Russ Ewing stood beside more than 100 people — at their request — as they surrendered to the police.
