Ruby Ridge was the site of an eleven-day siege near Naples, Idaho, beginning on August 21, 1992, between Randy Weaver, members of his immediate family, family friend Kevin Harris, and agents of the United States Marshals Service and the Hostage Rescue Team of the Federal Bureau of Investigation . Following a Marshals Service reconnoiter of the Weaver property pursuant to a bench warrant for Weaver after his failure to appear on firearms charges, an initial encounter between six US marshals and the Weavers resulted in a shootout and the deaths of Deputy US Marshal William Francis Degan, age 42, the Weaver's son Samuel , age 14, and a Weaver family dog. The subsequent siege of the Weaver residence, led by the FBI, resulted in the death of Weaver's wife Vicki, age 43, by FBI sniper fire. Wikipedia*
