SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — It's been a quarter-century since a standoff in the mountains of northern Idaho left a 14-year-old boy, his mother and a federal agent dead and sparked an expansion of radical right-wing groups in the United States that continues today.The gunfight at Ruby Ridge occurred when agents approached Randy Weaver's property near the Canadian border looking for a place to arrest the military veteran on gun charges. They had been investigating him for possible ties to white supremacist and anti-government groups.Weaver, his daughters and a friend holed up in the family's cabin for 11 days before surrendering on Aug. 31, 1992.
