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.

    You got modded Troll but you were exactly right. [soylentnews.org] It's not trolling if it is factual.

      If you're dismissive about people that called out Gawker as bullshit then you're as bad as untra-cons who call people libtards for pointing out faux is bullshit. Stop trying to pretending you're a different troll, it's not fooling anyone.

        Nope, just dismissive of one guy who isn't calling out gawker for anything other than his personal butt-hurt.

        Also, you are clearly the original troll just making illogical arguments so that you can come along and knock them down in order to make your original post look even more insightful. I know you are but what am I?
