(CNN) Seven people who were among the armed occupiers of a federal wildlife refuge in Oregon earlier this year were acquitted Thursday of charges related to the 41-day standoff.
Ammon Bundy; his brother, Ryan Bundy; and three other people were found not guilty of firearms charges and conspiracy to impede federal workers. Two others who were acquitted were charged only with conspiracy. The federal jury couldn't reach a verdict on a theft charge against Ryan Bundy.
There was a bit of drama in the courtroom after the decision, CNN affiliate KOIN reported. Ammon Bundy's attorney, Marcus Mumford, was taken down by US Marshals who reportedly used a stun gun on him after the lawyer argued with the judge that his client should be set free. Mumford spent a brief time in custody, KOIN reported.
The Bundy brothers and their father, Cliven Bundy, remain in police custody as they still face federal charges in Nevada for a standoff at the Bundy ranch in 2014.

Seven people linked to an armed occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon were arrested in that state on Tuesday, police said. Five, including the occupiers' leader, Ammon Bundy (pictured), were arrested in a traffic stop on U.S. 395, police said.
Also arrested in the traffic stop was Bundy's brother, Ryan Bundy (pictured). Police said shots were fired during the stop -- it was unclear who fired first -- and that Ryan Bundy was injured. One of the occupiers, LaVoy Finicum (not shown), died, police said.
Brian Cavalier was one of the five people arrested in Tuesday's traffic stop on U.S. 395 in Oregon, police said.
Shawna Cox was also among those arrested in Tuesday's traffic stop on U.S. 395 in Oregon, police said.
Ryan Waylen Payne was one of the five people arrested in Tuesday's traffic stop on U.S. 395 in Oregon, police said.
Joseph O'Shaughnessy was one of two people linked to the occupation who were arrested Tuesday in Burns, Oregon -- separate from the traffic stop, police said.
Peter Santilli was one of two people linked to the occupation who were arrested Tuesday in Burns, Oregon -- separate from the traffic stop, police said. All seven people arrested in Oregon on Tuesday face a federal felony charge of conspiracy to impede officers of the United States from discharging their official duties through the use of force, intimidation or threats, police said.
Jon Eric Ritzheimer, 32, turned himself in to police in Peoria, Arizona, the FBI said. Ritzheimer has organized armed anti-Muslim rallies and had been in Oregon supporting the occupiers there.
One of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge defendants, Neil Wampler, told reporters: "We came to Oregon ... seeking justice, and we found it today."
Another, Shawna Cox, said the jury's decision brought her to tears.
"I was thrilled. We all knew we weren't guilty," she said, according to KOIN.
Harney County Sheriff David M. Ward said he was disappointed.
"This is our system and I stand by it," he added.
Malheur National Wildlife Refuge: After the occupation
For the first time, we're getting a look at what life was like for the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge occupiers
-- and the damage they allegedly caused. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife service released a series of photos from in and around the federal center near Burns, Oregon.
Dan Ashe, director of the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, told reporters it will cost roughly $6 million to repair the damage caused from the 41-day occupation that started in January. The center will also undergo upgrades before reopening in the summer.
The occupiers, led by rancher Ammon Bundy, initially said they were demonstrating against the sentencing of Dwight Hammond and his son Steven, ranchers who were convicted of arson on federal lands in Oregon. The group later said they were protesting government overreach.
Investigators processing the site found human feces, spoiling food, firearms and explosives, according to documents filed last month
by federal prosecutors.
Once the site was cleared, cleanup crews were allowed in to start sifting through the mess.
The extent of the damage drew swift condemnation from members of the Burns Paiute tribe, which considers the refuge sacred ground. Bundy said in a statement that he did his best to preserve artifacts at the refuge when the occupation began.
Money, cameras and computers are allegedly missing from the center, CNN affiliate KOIN reported.
Authorities are still compiling an inventory.
When the occupation started, Bundy said he and others were prepared to stay for months if necessary. They had enough food and other supplies, he said,
to see them through for a long time.
The FBI said that dozens of people, including women and children, occupied the center.Correction: An earlier version of this caption incorrectly described the shooting of a protester who was driving away from the refuge. According to Deschutes County Sheriff L. Shane Nelson, protester LaVoy Finicum was shot by state police after he defied orders and reached toward a pocket that contained a handgun.
Sixteen people, including Ammon Bundy and his brother Ryan, have been indicted.
They face a federal felony count of conspiracy to impede officers of the United States through the use of force, intimidation or threats, the FBI said.
Gov. Kate Brown said she respected the jury's decision.
"The occupation of the Malheur Refuge by outsiders did not reflect the Oregon way of respectfully working together to resolve differences," she said.
Dozens of people occupied part of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge near Burns on January 2 after gathering outside for a demonstration supporting Dwight and Steven Hammond, father and son ranchers who were convicted of arson, and in defiant protest of federal land policies.
Many of the protesters who took over an unoccupied building on the refuge were armed.
One man was killed during an attempted traffic stop weeks into the occupation. The driver of one vehicle, LaVoy Finicum, was shot and killed when he got out and confronted authorities. Police said Finicum was reaching for a gun in his pocket. Prosecutors said the shooting was justified
Ammon Bundy and others were in another vehicle and surrendered to police.
The occupation of part of the federal wildlife refuge ended peacefully February 11 when the last four occupiers surrendered to authorities.
KOIN reported seven more occupiers are scheduled to go on trial in February.
