A Texas man was shot and killed after he opened fire with a military-style rifle at a federal building.

FBI agents identified the gunman as 22-year-old Brian Isaack Clyde shortly after he was killed by law enforcement officers outside the Earle Cabell Federal Building in downtown Dallas, reported The Dallas Morning News.

Clyde was pronounced dead at the scene, but no other injuries were reported.

It’s not clear why Clyde fired gunshots outside the government building.

Morning News photographer Tom Fox witnessed the shooting and took photos as Clyde fired his rifle across a parking lot toward him and some bystanders.

Clyde posted a cryptic video last week on his Facebook page that showed him holding up a rifle and warning of some unspecified action.

“I don’t know how much longer I have, but a f*cking storm is coming,” he said, reaching for a rifle that appears similar to one used in the shooting. “However, not without defense. I’m f*cking ready, let’s do it.”

His Facebook page featured numerous posts of guns, ammunition and other weapons, such as a sword, and indicated he was a U.S. Army infantry veteran and fan of conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.

Clyde wore what appeared to be a bulletproof vest and other tactical gear as he carried out the shooting.

While the accusations against the younger Biden have been disproven, it's suspected, but not confirmed, that this was the incident detailed in the complaint.

Published

In an examination of the record-breaking number of Republican lawmakers who have decided to quit or retire despite holding a seat in solidly conservative congressional districts, one lawmaker admitted that he grew weary of having to deal with Donald Trump's daily Twitter habit and other shenanigans -- so he is calling it quits.

As the Washington Post reports, "Since Trump’s inauguration, a Washington Post analysis shows that nearly 40 percent of the 241 Republicans who were in office in January 2017 are gone or leaving because of election losses, retirements including former House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (Wis)."

In her first tweet, Pence posted a video lavishing praise on the president.

"There are probably a lot of things you don't know about me," Pence says in the video. "For example, I enjoy painting, I love to ride my bike and I like nothing better than reading a good book. On my new Twitter account, I will share what I'm up to when I'm not in the office at the White House."
