The Nation

April 06, 1986

A heavily armed man who held an elderly woman hostage in Chicago after killing his landlord and a police officer surrendered peacefully, ending a 35-hour standoff. John Pasch Jr. walked out of his captive's North Side apartment into the glare of police floodlights. His 74-year-old hostage was unharmed. Officers said events in Philadelphia last May, when scores of homes were destroyed in the police confrontation with the radical group MOVE, were on their minds when they settled on a strategy of waiting out the gunman.
