Looks like the FBI tricked them into driving to a event where they were going to speak…Reports are that the killed was Lavoy Finicum.
Ammon Bundy, leader of the month-long militant occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Burns, Oregon, was arrested Tuesday in a highway confrontation with law enforcement that killed one of his followers and wounded another, according to the FBI.
Bundy and four followers were arrested in a traffic stop in which shots were fired, the FBI said in a statement.
The FBI said the shootings happened when agents, along with Oregon state troopers, stopped a vehicle to arrest people involved in the armed occupation on charges of conspiracy to impede federal officials from discharging their duties.
“During that arrest, there were shots fired,” the FBI said. “One individual who was a subject of a federal probable cause arrest is deceased. … One individual suffered non-life threatening injuries.”
A sixth person involved in the occupation was arrested about 90 minutes later in Burns, the FBI said.
“We have been informed that Ammon was taken in to custody while outside the refuge and that shots were fired, but confirmation of these details is still lacking,” the Bundy Ranch said on its Facebook page.
