A police helicopter located the vehicle, and officers were then able to maneuver the suspect off the road. Sgt. Rich Weiner said Barry then attempted to get out of the passenger side of the vehicle, and an officer Tased him with no effect.

When Barry lunged at an officer with a machete and a knife in his hand, Columbus Police Officer John Johnson, a 25-year veteran of the force, fired two shots from his duty weapon, striking and killing Barry.

Law enforcement officials say the FBI was looking at Barry for expressing radical Islamic views four years ago. For an unknown reason, the FBI moved on from him in their investigation.

He was in an FBI database, but the feds were not surveilling him at the time of last night’s attack. Law enforcement officials tell NBC News it is too soon to tell why he picked this restaurant, and say it’s also too soon to speculate on his possible affiliation with any specific groups….

It’s perfectly clear why he picked that restaurant. The owner is a pro-Israel Arab Christian.
