The final occupier of a remote federal property in Oregon surrendered to law enforcement Thursday, ending a nearly six-week standoff that tore apart a rural community, captivated a national audience and left one militant dead. David Fry, 27, turned himself over to authorities following a lengthy negotiation that was broadcast live on YouTube. He was detained upon his surrender. Three other holdouts from the group -- Sean and Sandy Anderson, 47 and 48, and Jeff Banta, 46 -- surrendered Thursday morning. Like Fry, all three were arrested as they walked out of the refuge to an FBI checkpoint. At one point during the live stream, posted by activist broadcaster Gavin Seim, Fry announced that he would kill himself if FBI agents advanced on his position. But he later promised to walk out after demanding that agents scream "Hallelujah."
