A gunman has been killed in an alleged attempt to breach the security of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) office building in the US state of Ohio.

BBC reported this information on August 12 (Friday).

Unable to enter the FBI office with a gun, the man fled the scene. But an hour later he was shot dead in a local village.

Law enforcement officials told US media that the 42-year-old man is being investigated for any links to far-right groups. However, it is not known why the man tried to enter the FBI office.
