The occupation is a protest against the US government’s control of millions of acres of territory in the west. The protesters say they are defending the US Constitution.
Bundy and four other senior members of his group, including his brother Ryan Bundy, were taken into custody following a confrontation with law enforcement officers along Highway 395, near the wildlife reserve, at around 16:25 local time (00:25 GMT) on Tuesday, the FBI said.
Authorities did not release the name of the person who died at the highway stop, but activists said Robert ‘LaVoy’ Finicum, a rancher who acted as a spokesman for the occupiers, had been killed.
Three more arrests were made later on Tuesday evening in relation to the occupation, the FBI said.
