James Alexander (1619)



5/7/2003: A 14-hour standoff ended with a large explosion and the death of James Alexander, a wanted man. It started at 1 a.m., when sheriff's deputies arrived to serve a warrant and were met by Alexander, who was armed with a gun and explosives. By noon, negotiators had made no progress in coaxing Alexander to come out of his RV. Shortly after 2 p.m., the negotiations broke off. Then, a large explosion shook the RV, and it was reportedly consumed by flames within seconds with Alexander still inside. http://www.msnewsnow.com/story/1258664/standoff-ends-in-explosion
