Sean L. Anderson, 52, of Riggins, Idaho, a Malheur occupier, “allegedly led deputies from three agencies on a pursuit … and was hospitalized following the shootout,” according to the Lewiston Tribune. 

The incident occurred Saturday, July 18, 2020, when a deputy “attempted a traffic stop.”

“The driver initially stopped for the deputy but then drove off. Two Lewis County deputies, along with an Idaho County deputy and an officer with the Nez Perce Tribal Police joined the pursuit that ended when the driver stopped in a residential area of Ferdinand and shots were fired.”

As for Anderson’s role in the occupation, “Idaho County Sheriff Doug Giddings confirmed Anderson was one of the last four holdouts during a protest at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, along with Ammon Bundy of Emmett, Idaho.”
