Armed suspect attempting to breach FBI office leads to pursuit


An attempted breach of a Cincinnati FBI building has led to an active standoff with an armed suspect in Clinton County, according to officials with the Ohio State Highway Patrol. According to Ohio State Highway Patrol and FBI Cincinnati, it started around 9 am when an armed man attempted to breach FBI Cincinnati’s visitor screening facility. An alarm went off and FBI special agents responded when the man fired a nail gun at law enforcement personnel. The man then held up an AR-15-style rifle before fleeing in a vehicle north onto I-71 leading Ohio State Highway Patrol on a pursuit. Police said during the pursuit, the suspect fired shots from his vehicle before getting off the highway, stopping near Smith Road in Clinton County. That’s when police said the suspect and officers exchanged gunfire, leading to an ongoing active standoff. No officers have been injured during the exchange of gunfire. It’s unclear if the suspect was struck by gunfire or injured. Numerous federal, state and local law enforcement agencies are on scene. OSP said the standoff is active but contained to a certain area. A lockdown remains in place to ensure the safety of those living nearby. Clinton County Emergency Management Agency officials say the suspect is described as wearing a gray shirt and body armor. No further details on the suspect have been released. I-71 is closed between State Routes 73 and 68 in both directions until further notice. State Route 73 is also shut down in both directions between Mitchell Road and State Route 380. State Route 380 is also closed between State Route 73 and Brimstone Road. A lockdown is in effect for all buildings within a one-mile radius of Smith Road and Center Road, according to Clinton County EMA. Residents and businesses are asked to lock their doors.
