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 died. 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 police. 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."
