FBI Surrounds Last Oregon Occupiers


The Federal Bureau of Investigation surrounded the national wildlife refuge in Oregon where four right-wing protesters remain this evening.

“Come out with your hands up,” a law enforcement official said, according to The Oregonian.

Armored vehicles have surrounded the buildings where the men are holed up. The three men and one woman say they are armed, according to a livestream of the confrontation.

The FBI said the encirclement began when David Fry drove an all-terrain vehicle outside of the encampment. When an agent approached Fry, who is wanted on a federal conspiracy charge, he allegedly fled back to the encampment at a high rate of speed. The FBI said negotiations are on-going and no shots have been fired. “We’re leaving tomorrow,” Fry said to the FBI.
