LAS VEGAS (AP) — Clark County sheriff's officials say they've been interviewed by the FBI as part of an investigation into armed supporters of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy.

Assistant Sheriff Joe Lombardo tells KLAS-TV that federal agents are looking into the conduct of people who reportedly pointed guns at officers during a standoff at Bundy's ranch April 12.

The Bureau of Land Management had been rounding up hundreds of Bundy's cattle that it says were trespassing on public land. It says Bundy owes more than $1.1 million in fees and penalties.

The roundup was called off over safety concerns.

Bundy supporters have denied pointing weapons at authorities and say that BLM rangers were the ones pointing guns.

A spokeswoman for the FBI in Las Vegas did not immediately respond to messages seeking comment.
