BEND, OR -- Two videos just released by the Deschutes County Sheriff's Office reveal more about the traffic stop of Militia members that resulted in the fatal shooting of LaVoy Finicum. DCSO is leading the investigation into the January officer-involved shooting, outside of Burns.

 

The new cell phone videos were taken by Ryan Bundy, the brother of militia leader Ammon Bundy. He was in the truck driven by Finicum when the group was pulled over on their way to John Day, January 26, 2016. In the video, Ryan Bundy can be heard off camera saying, "We got too lackadaisical trying to speak to people. Anyway, they ambushed us on the way to John Day, now they’re shooting at our vehicle and we’re hunkered down."

The group eventually gave up without further incident and were taken into custody. They are awaiting trial in Portland on charges that include Conspiracy to Impeded Federal Officers.
