Previously: Militia Occupies Federal Building in Oregon After Rancher Arson Convictions

Russia Today reports:

Ammon Bundy, the leader of the armed group occupying a federal wildlife refuge near Burns, Oregon, and four others have been arrested by law enforcement amid gunfire, according to the FBI.

At 4:25 pm on [January 26], the FBI and Oregon State Police "began an enforcement action to bring into custody a number of individuals associated with the armed occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. During that arrest, there were shots fired", the Bureau said in a statement.

The FBI said one person who was "a subject of a federal probable cause arrest is deceased". He said they are not releasing any information on the person "pending identification by the medical examiner's office".

One person suffered non-life threatening injuries and was taken to a local hospital for treatment. He was arrested and is in custody.

The arrested individuals include:
- Ammon Edward Bundy, age 40, of Emmett, Idaho.
- Ryan C. Bundy, age 43, of Bunkerville, Nevada.
- Brian Cavalier, age 44, of Bunkerville, Nevada.
- Shawna Cox, age 59, of Kanab, Utah.
- Ryan Waylen Payne, age 32, of Anaconda, Montana.

    Screaming about how nerds need to be bullied and complaining about Jennifer Lawrence's nudes while diddling kids and watching Hulk Hogan's sex tape?

    I was being facetious, but I'm actually quite happy to accept the flame bait mod for this, it's all actual true though.

    Lawrence's nudes [gawker.com]
    Defending paedophiles [gawker.com]
    Hulk Hogan's sex tape [gawker.com]

    And that's not even the tip of the iceberg for the crap Gawker prints and does. So mod away, doesn't change reality.
