Herald-Leader Reporter Spoke To Suspect During Standoff

While police surrounded a home where gunfire killed two people
including a firefighter, a newspaper reporter spoke by telephone
with the lone person holed up in the house.

The Lexington Herald-Leader said a reporter inadvertently called
the home and ended the call after a request by police who were
alerted by an editor.

"Me and God's creatures - we're going to do the best we can with
what we got to work with," the Herald-Leader quoted the man as
saying. "These police officers and these folks - I got a feeling
they're getting ready to die."

Lexington firefighter Brenda Cowan, 40, died Friday after being
shot while responding to a domestic violence call at the home in
southeast Fayette County. Another firefighter also was shot.

When firefighters, who also are emergency medical workers,
arrived on the scene a woman already had been shot. She also

After a standoff of several hours, police took a man into
custody and identified him as Pat Hutchinson. Charges were not
immediately filed.

According to the Herald-Leader, its reporters were trying to
call neighbors of the home. Thinking the shooting happened at a
different home, a reporter accidentally called Hutchinson.
"We're going against the evil alien clones," the Herald-Leader
reported Hutchinson as saying. "I started with my wife."

The newspaper placed the call about 4:30 p.m. EST, about an hour
after the standoff began. Once the reporter realized she had the
suspect on the line, she kept him talking while an editor called

The conversation continued while the editor was put on hold.
When an officer returned to the line and asked the Herald-Leader
to end the call with Hutchinson, the reporter did.

Soon after, the reporter relayed the contents of the interview
to police. Asked to start at the beginning, Hutchinson told the
paper, "At the end of World War II, a UFO crash-landed near the
Russian border." Aliens "possess the upper echelons of our
administration. There's only 735 true humans left in Lexington,
less than 3 million left worldwide," he said.

He denied that he had mental problems: "You think, 'this guy's a
nut.' I'm not a nut."
