Armed man who attempted to breach FBI Cincinnati died after standoff

An armed man was fatally shot by law enforcement after he attempted to break into the FBI’s Cincinnati office and fled the scene Thursday, authorities said.

An hourslong standoff followed, where the man was at one point “contained,” according to the Clinton County Emergency Management Agency.

At one point during the standoff, the suspect, who has not been publicly identified, raised a gun toward police, said Lt. Nathan Dennis of the Ohio Highway Patrol. Law enforcement officers shot and killed 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 said at a press conference.

The man attempted to breach the visitor screening facility at around 9 a.m. at the bureau’s field office in Cincinnati, the FBI said in a tweet. Officials said the man was wearing body armor
