Gunman who tried to breach FBI Cincinnati dies after standoff

A gunman was fatally shot by law enforcement after he attempted to break into the FBI office in Cincinnati and fled Thursday, authorities said.

An hour-long standoff ensued, where the man was at one point “contained”, according to the Clinton County Emergency Management Agency.

At some point during the confrontation, the suspect, who has not been publicly identified, raised a weapon toward police, Ohio Highway Patrol Lt. Nathan Dennis said. Law enforcement officers shot him shortly after 3:45 p.m., he said.

“He succumbed to his injuries at the scene and everything remains under investigation at this time,” Dennis told a news conference.

The man attempted to enter the visitor screening facility around 9 a.m. at the office’s field office in Cincinnati, the FBI said in a tweet. Officials said the man was wearing a bulletproof vest
