A student at Ohio State University intentionally drove his car onto a crowded sidewalk on the Columbus campus, striking students, then proceeded to get out and stab multiple people with a butcher knife at around 9:52 A.M. this morning. The suspect, Abdul Razak Ali Artan, was shot and killed by an OSU police officer shortly after the attack.
Eleven people were taken to local hospitals, all of which being treated for stab wounds or injuries resulting from being struck by the suspects car. There have been no reports on the status of the victims, but more information will be released in the coming days.
OSU Emergency Management was the first to notify students of the attack, tweeting “Buckeye Alert: Active Shooter on campus. Run Hide Fight. Watts Hall. 19th and College.”
Classes were cancelled for the remainder of the day at the Columbus campus, but will resume a regular schedule on Tuesday, November 29th.
