Suspect ID’d In Cincinnati FBI Headquarters Shooting

The Associated Press reports:

An armed man decked out in body armor tried to breach a security screening area at an FBI field office in Ohio on Thursday, then fled and was injured in an exchange of gunfire in a standoff with law enforcement, authorities said. Federal officials said the man had “attempted to breach” the visitor’s screening area at the FBI office and fled when he was confronted by agents. He was chased onto Interstate 71, and a shot was fired from his car, according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

The suspect left the interstate and abandoned his car on nearby roads, where he exchanged gunfire with police. The man has “unknown injuries,” but no one else was hurt, the patrol said. There have been growing threats in recent days against FBI agents and offices across the country since federal agents executed a search warrant at Mar-a-Lago. On Gab, a social media site popular with white supremacists and antisemites, users have warned they are preparing for an armed revolution.

CNN reports:

Law enforcement officers are engaged in an “active standoff situation” with a suspect who authorities say attempted to breach the FBI’s field office in Cincinnati on Thursday. A lockdown remains in effect for a 1-mile radius around the intersection of Smith Road and Center Road, according to the Clinton County Emergency Management Agency, which instructed area residents to remain vigilant. A law enforcement source told CNN authorities have identified the suspect.

They know who he is but he’s not yet been apprehended.
