Shots were fired, but it’s unclear who fired first, the official said. Ryan Bundy was injured, but Finicum died, the official added.

Michelle Obama On Young Barack: ‘He Was A Bum’:
President Barack Obama has always been candid about his youthful transgressions — a history his wife referenced Tuesday when explaining anyone can become a high achiever.

“He didn’t take school seriously in high school. He barely got his work done. He was a bum! And it took him a second. He had to grow up a little bit,” she said.
Michelle Obama said her husband didn’t become serious about his education until he transferred to Columbia University during his second year of college.
