TAMPA, Fla. — The gunman that tried to breach the FBI Cincinnati office has ties to Florida, according to Tampa Bay Times. 

Ricky Walter Shiffer, Jr. lived in multiple addresses around the Tampa Bay area dating back to 2005. Records from the Hillsborough County Elections Office showed that Shiffer was registered to vote in Hillsborough County as a Republican in 2021.

On August 11, Shiffer, 42, was killed by the FBI in a shootout after they said he tried to breach the FBI Cincinnati office. They said he was armed with a nailgun and an AR-styled semi automatic rifle.

A social media account that is believed to be his made a call to arms following the FBI executed a search warrant on former President Donald Trump's home at Mar-A-Lago in Palm Beach, FL.
