“Ten people were taken to hospitals and one suspect was dead after a chaotic car-and-knife attack at Ohio State University on Monday morning, officials said.
The incident was initially reported as an “active shooter” situation, but the suspect did not shoot anyone. Instead, he crashed their car into a crowd and attacked victims with a knife, witnesses and law enforcement officials told NBC News.
A police officer was on the scene within a minute and shot the suspect dead. His name was not released, but law enforcement officials told NBC News he was an Ohio State student, a Somali refugee who was a legal resident of the United States.
The motive was unknown, but officials said the attack was clearly deliberate and may have been planned in advance.
A campus lockdown was lifted about 11:30 a.m. about 90 minutes after the violence unfolded on the Columbus, Ohio, campus.
“This car just swerved and ran into a whole group of people,” said Nicole Kreinbrink, who was walking down the street when she saw the car hit people who had evacuated an academic building during a fire alarm. “
