LEWISTON, Idaho — The Idaho State Police has identified a man injured during a police pursuit and shootout in northern Idaho on Saturday.

The events unfolded after an attempted traffic stop for an apparent equipment violation. The Lewiston Tribune reported that 52-year-old Sean L. Anderson of Riggins was identified Monday. He was a participant in the 41-day armed occupation in 2016 at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Burns, Oregon.

Police said the pursuit ended when the vehicle stopped in a residential area and shots were fired. Anderson was hospitalized but his condition could not be verified Monday. No officers were injured. The Idaho State Police and the FBI are investigating.
