Law enforcement authorities say the shooter in the Oregon District attack had a history of obsession with violence and had expressed a previous desire to commit a mass shooting.

Dayton Police announced Tuesday the Federal Bureau of Investigation is taking over the investigation into the 24-year-old killer’s motives in the attack that left nine people dead and more than two dozen others injured.

At a press conference, an FBI special agent from the Cincinnati Field Office told reporters there’s still a lot of evidence to go through.

Special counsel Robert Mueller stepped down Wednesday after concluding not only one of the highest-profile investigations in recent history, but one of the most distinctive codas in the career of any top Washington official.

Mueller addressed reporters at the Justice Department in his first public statement since taking over the Russia investigation, ending two years of near-silence even under one of the hottest spotlights ever to burn on a public figure.

An Ohio man is in federal custody after falsely claiming he was a boy missing since 2011. 23-year-old Brian Rini is charged with lying to a federal agent. District Attorney Ben Glassman says DNA testing shows Rini is not Timmothy Pitzen of Illinois who was last seen in 2011.

The investigators who raided Cuyahoga County Executive Armond Budish’s office on Thursday sought Budish’s electronic records, files on the county jail and any evidence of extortion, obstruction and other crimes, according to a search warrant provided by the county.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced Friday the creation of a new task force in Cleveland aimed at taking down drug trafficking and violent crime.

Speaking at the U-S Attorney’s office in Cleveland, Rosenstein says there will be a mix of federal and local agencies involved in the strike force.

"Those agencies have diverse capabilities, and by working together with a single mission, we know they can make an impact in dismantling drug organizations here and internationally, but only if they work together with our state and local partners."

Federal Judge Sentences Former Kent State Professor

A former Kent State history professor will spend months behind bars.

Julio Pino pleaded guilty in April to one count of lying to the FBI.

A federal judge sentenced him Wednesday to five months in prison and five months on house arrest.

He’ll also spend three years on probation and could have his internet access restricted.

The charge against Pino stems from an investigation into threats made on social media toward a judge in St. Louis. Pino denied knowing the person on social media despite making comments on his posts.

As another attempt among Republicans to pick a Speaker of the Ohio House has stalled, there has been some action in the hometown of the former Speaker. It is likely connected to reports of an FBI inquiry into Cliff Rosenberger’s travel with lobbyists connected to the payday lending industry.
