Oregon occupation protest leaders Ammon and Ryan Bundy were arrested Tuesday in a highway traffic stop that ended in gunfire and left an anti-government rancher dead. Five others were also detained.
The brothers were seized about 45 miles north of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge where they began a sit-in on Jan. 2. The Bundy's and others had been scheduled to meet authorities in the town of John Day, 70 miles north of Burns at 6 p.m. (9 p.m. ET).
One of their supporters, Arizona rancher LaVoy Finicum, 54, was killed in the shooting, his daughter told NBC News.

At the federal wildlife refuge, protester Jason Patrick told NBC News that the remaining supporters were discussing if and how the occupation might end, adding that a "peaceful resolution is what we expect."
Four carloads of occupiers left early Wednesday, and Patrick said children at the scene had gone.
