It’s been a while, but you probably remember when Robert “LaVoy” Finicum was gunned down by federal agents as he went to meet the sheriff during a standoff at the Malheur Wildlife Refuge, which many people believed to be an execution.

Well, justice may finally come for Finicum’s family after an FBI agent has been officially indicted over the incident.

The Oregonian is reporting that the unidentified agent will face charges of lying to authorities with intent to obstruct justice after it was determined he fired one of the shots that led to Finicum being murdered. Video from inside of the truck Finicum was driving shows that shots were fired right as he was exiting the truck, although he wasn’t hit, but the agent responsible denied ever firing them.

Now, they’re facing criminal prosecution for setting off the chain of events that led to an otherwise peaceful rancher being killed in cold-blood.

From the Oregonian:

The agent will face allegations of making a false statement with intent to obstruct justice, according to sources familiar with the case.

The indictment stems from a more than yearlong investigation by the inspector general of the U.S. Department of Justice. The agent will be identified when he’s summoned to appear in U.S. District Court in Portland at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Investigators said a member of the FBI’s elite Hostage Rescue Team fired at Finicum as his 2015 Dodge pickup truck crashed into a snow bank at a roadblock on U.S. 395. Finicum had just sped away from a surprise traffic stop on the rural highway as the occupation leaders traveled off the refuge to a community meeting Jan. 26, 2016.

The agent’s bullets didn’t hit Finicum, 54, an Arizona rancher who was the spokesman for the armed takeover of the federal sanctuary near Burns in Harney County. Moments later, state police troopers shot Finicum three times after he emerged from his white truck and reached for his inner jacket pocket, where police said he had a loaded 9mm handgun. One bullet pierced his heart, an autopsy found.

As Finicum left his truck, an FBI agent shot twice at Finicum, though none of the hostage team members admitted to discharging their firearms, the Deschutes County sheriff alleged. The county sheriff’s office was tasked with investigating the Finicum shooting.

The Oregon investigators concluded that one agent fired at Finicum’s truck, hitting it in the roof and missing on the second shot. A state trooper later described to investigators seeing two rifle casings in the area where the FBI agents were posted. But detectives called to investigate didn’t find the casings, police reports indicated.

At the time, it appeared as if the entire stop was a setup, considering there was aircraft present as well as two separate road blocks, and members of the family have claimed that the reason they fled the first is because someone was shooting at them, which would explain why the agent lied about taking the shots. Finally, with the indictment of one of the agents present, we may finally get to learn the truth about what happened.
