A tearful man armed with a shotgun disconnected life-support equipment from his comatose brother, then surrendered about two hours later while police were planning to storm the hospital room, Phoenix authorities said Monday. John P. Whipple, 28, was breathing on his own but remained in critical condition, authorities said. He was admitted to John C. Lincoln Hospital on Thursday after an apparent drug overdose, police said. Robert Whipple, 19, was booked for investigation of attempted murder, and released on his own recognizance.
