FBI - Cincinnati: Suspect identified as, Ricky Walter Shiffer, was present at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6th…

The suspect, identified by the officials as Ricky Shiffer, 42, seems to have appeared in a video posted on Facebook on Jan. 5, 2021, showing him attending a pro-Trump rally at Black Lives Matter Plaza in Washington the night before the Capitol was stormed. (Read More Here).


An armed man who fired a nail gun into an FBI field office in Cincinnati on Thursday, was fatally shot after a chase and standoff with law enforcement. Officials say that the suspect, Ricky Walter Shiffer, was also at the U.S. Capitol during the insurrection on Jan. 6.

Officials say Ricky tried to breach the FBI’s visitor screening facility armed with an AR-15-style rifle, when he fired into the building with a nail gun. After triggering an alarm, Ricky fled to his vehicle and a chase ensued. Officers fatally shot the suspect after he failed to negotiate with law enforcement and raised his firearm, Ohio State Highway Patrol spokesman, Lt. #NathanDennis, told reporters.

According to @nytimes Ricky was under investigation for having “ties to extremist groups,” including the Proud Boys. He apparently made numerous pro-Trump posts across social media platforms including Trump’s own, Truth Social.
