Members of Danny Wilson's family gather Wednesday, July 18, 2018, in Abbeville, S.C., during a break in the demolition of a house where two police officers were killed nearly 15 years ago. The house has been a macabre reminder of the killings in a 12-hour standoff between authorities and Steven Bixby and his father, who fired hundreds of rounds at each other in 2003.
