Incident at Cincinnati FBI Building and Subsequent Shootout – Opinion

Further information has been released by the FBI about Thursday’s incident at their Cincinnati FBI Building.

“At approximately 9 AM this morning an armed subject attempted to breach the Visitor Screening Facility at #FBI Cincinnati,” the FBI said. “After an alarm and a response by FBI special agents, the subject fled north onto Interstate 71.”

What that doesn’t say is that while the man allegedly flashed an AR-15, he didn’t fire that at anyone in the FBI building. He fired his nail gun at the personnel of the building instead.

The law enforcement then followed him. He ended up being involved in a shootout with the law enforcement.

“Law enforcement has traded shots with a male suspect who is wearing a gray shirt and body armor,” the agency said in a statement, warning people nearby to stay inside and lock their doors. The Ohio State Highway Patrol stated that the suspect fired shots at a Ford Crown Victoria as he was being followed by police.

According to Ohio State Highway Patrol, the suspect is not suffering from any injuries. Officers and bystanders were not injured.

At about 12:30, the agency said the suspect was “contained” but not in custody.

There is no indication at this point as to motive, or whether this case has anything to do with the FBI raid on President Donald Trump’s home, despite the left trying to make hay out of the incident, suggesting that this is some kind of retaliatory act. It is also odd to shoot a nail gun if one is not armed. This suggests that the attacker could just be unhinged. We’ll have to wait and see what additional information is provided to draw any conclusions.
