At least nine people were injured and taken to the hospital after an active shooter was reported at Ohio State University Campus. The fire department noted that nine are in stable condition, one in critical and a suspect was dead.
Apparently a car was driven into into a building and then attacked people with a knife.
Two suspects have been brought out in handcuffs.
The active shooter situation has ended and the scene is now secure. ALL classes are canceled on Columbus campus today.
However, the area around 19th and College Avenue is still closed.
Ohio State University Police sent the alert at 9:56 a.m. on Monday morning.
OSU senior Anthony Falzarano, said he was in class at the time of the attack.
“We heard a lot of sirens. I was in class and everyone got a text message at the same time for the emergency alert,” he told CNN. “Someone said they heard popping right before we got the alert, but I didn’t hear it. We are in a shelter-in-place right now in the building next door. ”
“The officers are putting on Kevlar vests and have big weapons,” he said. “I can’t see anyone going inside the building — there’s just so many cops here.”
Sophomore Wyatt Crosher said he heard gunfire.
“My roommate and I heard about three or four gunshots from across the street, and soon after we heard a bunch of police and ambulances pull up across the street,” Crosher said. “We can’t see the building where the shooting happened because of a dorm blocking our view. It truly sounded like gunshots, and really soon after we heard a bunch of sirens. We can see the police cars from our dorm.”
