Man who tried to breach FBI office killed after standoff

BY The Canadian Press, Aug 12, 2022 12:40 AM - REPORT AN ERROR

The Ohio Highway State Patrol says an armed man who tried to breach the FBI's Cincinnati office was shot and killed by police after he fled the scene and engaged in an hourslong standoff.

A law enforcement official said federal investigators are examining whether the man, identified as 42-year-old Ricky Shiffer, may have had ties to far-right extremist groups, including the Proud Boys.

The official said Shiffer is believed to have been in Washington in the days leading up to the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection and may have been present at the Capitol on the day of the attack.

The official could not discuss details of the investigation publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.
