Man killed by police after FBI break-in had lawsuit in Franklin County

An armed man who was fatally shot Thursday by Ohio law enforcement after he attempted to break into the FBI’s suburban Cincinnati’s office and exchanged gunfire with police said on a social media account that he was an electrician living in Columbus.

The man, identified by law enforcement authorities as 42-year-old Ricky Walter Shiffer, appears to have most recently lived in Omaha, Nebraska, and the St. Petersburg and Tampa areas in Florida, records indicate. However, he has had several Columbus addresses in the past and was a registered voter in Franklin County from at least as far back as 2013 and last voted here in the November 2020 election. Records show he began voting in Florida in the April 2021 primary.
