One year ago Saturday (October 1st), a gunman opened fire during a writing class in Snyder Hall at Umpqua Community College. He killed 9 people and then himself.

An informant tipped off Oregon State Police that Malheur occupation leaders were traveling to John Day, Oregon, on Jan. 26, according to information revealed Wednesday in court.

Authorities used that information to take Ammon Bundy, Ryan Bundy, Shawna Cox and several others into custody after stopping them en route to a community meeting in nearby Grant County on Jan. 26, 2016.

Wednesday’s testimony centered mostly on that day, which drastically altered the occupation’s trajectory.
