(NEW YORK) —  Four members of a militia group occupying the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon surrendered to the FBI Thursday, one day after authorities moved into the property.

The FBI said in a press release that the four occupiers — Sean Larry Anderson, Sandra Lynn Anderson, Jeff Wayne Banta and David Lee Fry — were bought into custody without incident. No one was injured and no shots were fired, the FBI said.

The night before, the occupiers announced they would surrender Thursday morning, marking the 41st day in their fight against federal control of public land.
