Ammon Bundy, leader of the armed occupation at the Malheur Wildlife Refuge and three other militiamen were arrested Tuesday evening.

Ammon Bundy, leader of the armed occupation at the Malheur Wildlife Refuge and three other militiamen were arrested Tuesday evening.

According to KATU News, there was some sort of engagement involving gunshots as the militia group was on its way to a meeting.

Oregon Live said that two people have been shot and Ammon Bundy is in custody, presumably by the FBI.

Pete Santilli, a self-styled journalist, recorded a video on social media discussing the breaking development. He also reported that the FBI has told the protesters at the wildlife refuge that they are free to go and need to leave immediately.

According to reports, Santilli is waiting at the hospital to confirm the reports of the shootings.

Bundy and dozens of other individuals occupied the wildlife refuge earlier this month after two local ranchers were sent to prison for setting fires on federal land.

This is a developing story.

    They should have killed everyone of them and burned the rest of them out.

    Gregg, since when is killing the just or noble thing to do? What would Jesus do? We should not continue to do wrong just because we have done wrong in the past, or because others have wronged us. Be the change you wish to see in the world, my friend.

    The man charged a federal agen according to the current reports, with a gun in his belt after running a legally sanctioned road block. A simple case of suicide by cop, they said they would and he did. This is not a religious issue Jack Fox, has nothing to do with the imaginary male in robes in the sky, its law and killing others in a kill or be killed is justifiable homocide.
