FBI agents pursued and cornered an armed suspect who allegedly made threats and tried to breach the Visitor Screening Facility at the agency’s Cincinnati office Thursday morning.

FBI Cincinnati tweeted:

Agents pursued the suspect on I-71 and apparently cornered him “in a cornfield near the intersection of I-71 and State Route 73, which is the Wilmington exit,” WKEF reported.

Shots were fired and the Warren County EMA tweeted for people to avoid the area:

“The FBI, Ohio State Highway Patrol and local law enforcement are now on scene near Wilmington where they say they are trying to resolve the critical incident,” WLWT noted.
