For many on the right side of the aisle, there is a palpable anger at the Federal Bureau of Investigation this week.  Their raid on the Florida estate of former President Donald Trump has been seen as a political stunt, reminiscent of the formative years of fascism during other times in history.

Now, amid this agitation, a harrowing series of events have occurred in Ohio.

An armed suspect who tried to breach a secure area at the FBI field office in Ohio, led police on a chase and exchanged gunfire with officers has “unknown injures,” authorities say.

Multiple federal, state, and law enforcement agencies are on scene where a standoff with the suspect is underway, Ohio State Highway Patrol tweeted.

At approximately 9 a.m., an armed subject attempted to breach the Visitor Screening Facility at FBI Cincinnati, according to tweet from FBI Cincinnati’s account.

Unconfirmed information shared internally among agents suggested the suspect possibly brandished a nail gun and an AR-15 style rifle, the source said.

Troopers located the suspect’s vehicle, a Ford Crown Victoria, near the northbound Interstate 71 rest area in Warren County around 9:37 a.m.

Then came a harrowing chase.

Law enforcement pursued, and the suspect traveled about 60 miles northwest before the pursuit ended at I-71 and Hwy 73.

State Highway Patrol said shots were fired from within the suspect’s vehicle. The pursuit continued on Interstate 71 until the suspect exited at state Route 73, traveling eastbound before turning onto Smith Road, Ohio State Highway Patrol said.

In the late afternoon on Thursday, a standoff between police and the suspect ended, but no further details were available at the time of this report.
