American media sources reported that an armed person attempted to attack the FBI building in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Iran PressAmerica: An armed man decked out in body armor tried to breach a security screening area at an FBI field office Thursday, then fled and was injured in an exchange of gunfire in an hourslong standoff with law enforcement that persisted into late afternoon, authorities said.

The incident came amid widespread outrage in right-wing circles over an FBI raid on former president Donald Trump's Florida home, although there was no immediate indication the events were linked.

The FBI said a person armed with a weapon had tried to “breach” the entry to the bureau's office in the city of Cincinnati early on Thursday.

"Upon the activation of an alarm and a response by armed FBI special agents, the subject fled,” the FBI said in a statement.

Local media reported that the man had fired a nail gun and brandished an AR-15-style rifle before fleeing by car.

Former President Donald Trump said Monday that the FBI had raided his Mar-a-Lago Club and searched his safe activity related to an investigation into the potential mishandling of classified documents, according to two people familiar with the probe. 219
