The machete-wielding man who attacked diners at an Ohio restaurant was from Guinea, the FBI said.

But the bureau said it’s premature to discuss the motives behind the Thursday attack in Columbus, the Associated Press reports.

Mohamed Barry, 30, was shot and killed by a policeman.

Police said they contacted the local terrorism task force based on information about the registration of Berry’s car.

Four people were injured in the attack.

Armed with a loaded rifle, a machete and gasoline, a man threatened to kill former president George W. Bush and win over one of his two daughters, USA Today reports.

The Secret Service arrested Benjamin Smith, 44,  in New York City after he told agents he was “working on a relationship with Barbara Bush.”

After a 12-hour search, they found Rossi with a loaded .38-caliber rifle.

Police received a tip from the man’s mother after finding a note.

“I’m going to work for George W. Bush and the Pentagon,” the note said. “I have to slay a dragon and then Barbara Bush is mine.”
