Suspect Killed After Attempted Attack on FBI Building

Ohio State Highway Patrol exchanged gunfire with an armed man attempting to break into the FBI building in Cincinnati on Thursday morning. The man was allegedly carrying an AR-15 and shooting into the building with a nail gun.

“At approximately 9:15 EST, the FBI Cincinnati Field Office had an armed subject attempt to breach the Visitor Screening Facility (VSF),” FBI Cincinnati said in a statement. “Upon the activation of an alarm and a response by armed FBI special agents, the subject fled northbound onto Interstate 71.”

At about 12:30 p.m. local time, the agency said the suspect was “contained” but not in custody, according to a report from NBC News.

The suspect took off on I-71 towards Columbus and the pursuit eventually ended near W. State Route 73, according to a report from Fox 8.

During the chase, the highway was shutdown in both directions as multiple agencies attempted to apprehend the suspect.

The armed man was reportedly making threats as he attempted to breach the building, but it is not clear what those threats were at this time.

According to reports over the police scanner, the suspect was a “white male.” He was allegedly wearing a grey shirt and body armor.

“Blood splatter on his shorts. Right thigh area,” an officer in a police helicopter said over the radio, according to a report from the News Journal. “Part of windshield shot out … Suspect on knees, holding rifle.”

“Rifle down for the moment. He is on his knees,” an officer said over the scanner at 10:24 a.m. local time.

The incident is taking place just days after the agency raided Donald Trump’s residence at Mar-a-Lago.

FBI director Christopher Wray has claimed that there have been threats against him and agents in the aftermath of the raid.

“I’m always concerned about threats to law enforcement,” Wray said during a news conference on Wednesday. “Violence against law enforcement is not the answer, no matter who you’re upset with.”

Update:

A suspect was killed Thursday afternoon in a gunfire exchange with officers following an hours-long standoff in Cincinnati, Ohio, authorities said. Officials said the standoff began after the suspect attempted to breach the Cincinnati FBI field office building at around 9 a.m. and then led officers on a pursuit.

The suspect, identified by two law enforcement sources as Ricky Shiffer, ended the standoff by firing at officers, Ohio State Highway Patrol Lt. Nathan Dennis said in a news briefing Thursday evening. Officers returned fire and the suspect died on the scene. No officers were injured in the confrontation.

Official sources also identified him as a man who had attended the protest at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.
