    Oregon occupation protest leaders Ammon and Ryan Bundy were arrested Tuesday in a highway traffic stop that ended in gunfire and left an anti-government rancher dead. Five others were also detained.

    The brothers were seized about 45 miles north of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge where they began a sit-in on Jan. 2.

    Bundy’s brother, Ryan Bundy, suffered a minor gunshot wound and was among those arrested. At least three others traveling with the Bundys were also arrested, as were two members of the group who were in Burns, Ore., site of the Malheur Wildlife Refuge.

    They face felony charges of conspiracy to impede federal officers.

    Ammon Bundy and others started out protesting the sentencing of Dwight Hammond and his son Steven, ranchers convicted of arson on federal lands in Oregon.

    But a march supporting the Hammonds led to the armed occupation of the refuge, with protesters decrying what they call government overreach when it comes to federal lands.
