“LaVoy Finicum has been murdered. LaVoy’s hands were in the air and he was shot in the face. Ammon Bundy reported there were 6 witneses. This evil doing must be told to everyone.
We must all pull together and have our voices heard. Use your circle of influence to get the truth out. This fight is not over!” From his wife.
BURNS, Ore. — One person was killed and another wounded as federal and state authorities arrested the leader of an armed group that has occupied a national wildlife refuge in Oregon for more than three weeks and five of his followers, the FBI said late Tuesday.
The FBI said authorities arrested Ammon Bundy, 40, his brother Ryan Bundy, 43, Brian Cavalier, 44, Shawna Cox, 59, and Ryan Payne, 32, during a traffic stop Tuesday afternoon on U.S. Highway 395.
Authorities said another person, Joseph Donald O’Shaughnessy, 45, was arrested by Oregon State Police in Burns. Later Tuesday evening, the FBI arrested Peter Santilli, 50, in Burns.
In addition, the FBI says Jon Ritzheimer, 32, was arrested in Arizona on a federal charge related to the wildlife refuge takeover in Oregon. The agency said Ritzheimer turned himself in to police in Peoria, Arizona and was arrested without incident
