1 dead, 8 arrested following shootout in Oregon standoff

At least eight of the militia members who have been occupying the Oregon wildlife refuge for nearly a month were taken into custody by federal authorities on Tuesday.

The arrests followed a brief highway shootout that left one militiaman dead. Tensions still remain high as occupiers remain at the center, continuing to hold out against state and local authorities.
