Retired minister Ray Barker, who helped arrange the surrender, guessed that the brothers were just tired of the chase.

Shortly after the brothers fled the initial confrontation.... Chevie Kehoe was cornered and shot his way out again. Authorities later recovered a small arsenal from their abandoned truck including thousands of rounds of ammo, U.S. Marshal badges, sniper rifles and body bags. Authorities believe the brothers were followers of the far right militias and white separatists.
