The FBI says so far it has found no evidence that the man who allegedly attacked patrons in a Columbus restaurant was working with anyone else.

The FBI says it has found no information that Mohammed Barry was working with anyone else when he conducted a machete attack in a Columbus restaurant earlier this month.

The Bureau says it continues to work with Columbus Police and others to investigate the February 11th attack in which four people were hurt at the Nazareth Restaurant and Deli on the far northeast side.

Barry who fled the scene was later killed by police.
