“One person died and at least seven others were taken into custody Tuesday when authorities confronted an armed protest group responsible for a nearly month-long occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in southeastern Oregon, officials said,” as the Los Angeles Times is reporting.
“Shots were fired, and self-styled protest leader Ammon Bundy was among a group of five people arrested on a state highway, officials said. One other person was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.
“The incident began at 4:25 p.m. on State Highway 395 when agents of the FBI and Oregon State Police ‘began a law enforcement action’ to take into custody those associated with the armed occupation of the refuge, authorities said in a statement.
“About two hours after the initial confrontation, authorities also arrested Internet radio host Peter Santilli, a supporter of the occupation who has documented the case on his program and via live stream since it began.”
