Oregon Live reported that two people have been shot, citing a “self-styled journalist” named Pete Santilli. Reports of shots fired, injuries and arrests have not been confirmed.
The outlet also cited Santilli when reporting that the FBI has told the protesters at the refuge to leave immediately.
However, investigative reporter Les Zaitz said that at the refuge itself, a protester stated there is no police presence.
At the refuge, no indication of trouble. One militant discounted report of arrests, said no one is leaving, no police there.

Bundy and his band of protesters have occupied the refuge for weeks now. The group is protesting federal ownership of wide swathes of land in the West, and wants to see control of the land returned to local and state jurisdiction.
