An armed man is threatening an FBI building in Cincinnati, according to the local NBC news affiliate, which says there are unconfirmed reports that the suspect is firing at police from an adjacent cornfield.

The incident comes days after the FBI raided Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence in Florida amid reported suspicions that the former president was withholding federal documents. The raid led to a massive uptick in violent rhetoric by Republican lawmakers against the FBI.
