Oregon militant leader Ammon Bundy was taken into custody by federal officials on Tuesday night, the Oregonian reported.
Bundy’s capture was first reported by one of his supporters, Pete Santilli, on a YouTube broadcast. KATU-TV confirmed Bundy’s arrest, adding that three other people were taken into custody.
Santilli also stated that two people were shot during the encounter that led to Bundy’s arrest. Oregon Public Broadcasting confirmed that Harney District Hospital in Burns, near the wildlife reserve that Bundy’s group seized, is on lockdown and that there was a “shooting incident.”
Militia members we have seen are visibly angry. One claimed, “Now you’re going to see the Pacific Patriot Network mobilized.”
Everyone from police to elected officials to militia members who has talked to The Raw Story over the last week said they didn’t want this end in bloodshed. We don’t have any confirmation if anyone was shot. It’s rumors right now.
But even if there hasn’t been violence, bloodshed seems more a lot more likely now with scores if not hundreds of armed militia members in and around Burns, Oregon.
