As local law enforcement publicly handled the armed occupation of the federal wildlife refuge in Oregon, the FBI behind the scenes, running surveillance.

Agents confirmed that the participants were armed and prepared to die, the Los Angeles Times reports, citing allegations in an indictment.

A Harney County sheriff’s officer relayed that a source “had explosives, night vision goggles, and weapons and that if they didn’t get the fight they wanted out there they would bring the fight to town.”

Law enforcement shot and killed an activist, Robert “LaVoy Finicum, 55.

Eight others were arrested.
