Finicum had been the calm speaking man the news media met when they were invited to the Malheur Wildlife Refuge after its occupation by Finicum and his associates. His death occurred as he was driving to a public forum. Later it was revealed a federal agent, who was prohibited from firing a service pistol, did fire it at the scene.
