(Reuters) - The leader of an armed occupation at a wildlife refuge in Oregon and several of his companions were arrested by federal authorities on Tuesday, CNN reported.

A law enforcement source told CNN that shots were fired during a traffic stop where Ammon Bundy and others were arrested, though it was not clear who opened fire first.

Reuters could not independently verify the report. Local and state authorities could not be immediately reached for comment.
