This is the complete video footage of a joint FBI and Oregon State
Police traffic stop and OSP officer-involved shooting of Robert "LaVoy"
Finicum along Oregon Highway 395 near milepost 50 in Harney County.
This footage, which has only been edited to blur out aircraft
information, was taken by the FBI on 01/26/2016 and released by the
FBI on 01/28/2016. Note regarding date/time stamp in the left corner
of video: Pilots use Zulu Time, also known as Greenwich Mean Time
(GMT), when they fly. Zulu time is eight hours ahead of Pacific
Standard Time (PST). Therefore, although this footage was taken on
January 26, 2016 in Oregon, the date/time stamp on the video shows
just after midnight January 27, 2016.

The Harney County Joint Information Center has now ceased

FBI Update on Malheur National Wildlife Refuge Feb. 12, 2016
FBI - Oregon - 02/12/16 5:12 PM
Today, the FBI began to process the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge
as a crime scene.
This morning, a team of FBI Special Agent Bomb Technicians,
detectives with the Oregon State Police Arson/Explosives Unit, and
bomb technicians from the Portland Police Bureau and Oregon Air
National Guard conducted an initial sweep of the property. A full
sweep is ongoing and will continue until the entire area is deemed
safe for law enforcement to operate.
Currently, the FBI's Evidence Response Teams (ERT) has entered areas
of the refuge and has begun to document and collect evidence related
to potential crimes committed during the occupation.
The FBI's Art Crime Team has deployed to work on the refuge. These
agents are specially-trained in cultural property investigations,
and they will be responsible for working with the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service and the Burns Paiute Tribe to identify and document
damage to the tribe's artifacts and sacred burial grounds.
All of this work will likely take a number of weeks to complete. As
the FBI works through each of these investigative processes, we will
consult with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service as to how and when
we will be able to return control of the refuge to that agency.
Harney County Joint Information Center Update:
The Harney County Joint Information Center (JIC) will continue to be
