Shots fired in arrests in Oregon standoff

UPDATE: The FBI has announced another arrest in  the confrontation with Ammon Bundy and his followers, bringing the total number of those arrested to seven.

The FBI said 50-year-old Peter Santilli of Cincinnati, Ohio was arrested at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday in Burns. Santilli has been operating an online talk-radio show during the occupation of the wildlife refuge.


Authorities say shots were fired during the arrest of members of an armed group that has occupied a national wildlife refuge in Oregon for more than three weeks.
    
In a statement Tuesday, the FBI said one individual "who was a subject of a federal probable cause arrest is deceased." No other information about the deceased was immediately released.
    
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 in Burns.
    
Bundy’s group, which has included people from as far away as Arizona and Michigan, seized the headquarters of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge on Jan. 2 as part of a long-running dispute over public lands in the West.
    
Bundy is the son of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, who was involved in a high-profile 2014 standoff with the government over grazing rights.
