Suspect killed by Ohio police after attempting to breach FBI office: officials

From Global News.

An armed suspect who attempted to breach an FBI office in Cincinnati was shot and killed by police after fleeing into a nearby rural area and exchanging gunfire with officers, law enforcement said Thursday evening.

Lt. Nathan Dennis, a spokesperson for the Ohio State Highway Patrol, said efforts to negotiate with the man throughout the afternoon were unsuccessful. No police officers were harmed, the official said.

The suspect was identified as Ricky Shiffer, 42, according to the law enforcement official.

The man is believed to have been in Washington in the days leading up to the Jan. 6, 2021 riot and may have been present at the U.S. Capitol on the day of the attack, according to a law enforcement official briefed on the matter who spoke to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity.
