    This photo provided by the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office on Wednesday, Jan. 27, 2016, shows Ammon Bundy, one of the members of an armed group occupying the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge as part of a dispute over public lands in the Western U.S. Bundy and several others were arrested on Tuesday, Jan. 26, prompting gunfire and leaving one man dead during a traffic stop along a highway in Oregon's frozen high country.

    Ammon Bundy, the leader of the armed occupation at an Oregon wildlife refuge again called on protesters to turn themselves in to police, NBC News reported.

    "My message still remains: turn yourselves in. Do not use physical force. Use the national platform that we have to continue defend liberty through our constitutional rights in an Article III court, with an Article III judge," Bundy said in the statement made through his lawyers.

    Bundy was arrested with his brother and six others on Tuesday.

    It was unclear how many protesters remain, but videos posted claim there were four people still there.
