Our news partner, WCPO-TV in Cincinnati, shared portions of the video, which is 7 hours in length, with News Center 7.

Shiffer, who was wearing body armor, was killed by gunfire during the hours-long standoff in Clinton County.

FBI spokesman Todd Lindgren released this statement from the Cincinnati office the day of the incident: “The FBI is now reviewing this agent-involved shooting. The FBI takes all shooting incidents involving our agents or task force members seriously. In accordance with FBI policy, the shooting incident is under investigation by the FBI’s Inspection Division. The review process is thorough and objective, and is conducted as expeditiously as possible under the circumstances.”

A separate federal law enforcement source tells CNN that authorities are looking into whether Shiffer had ties to any group that participated in the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol or if he participated himself.
