At least one suspect is dead and 10 people were sent to the hospital after a chaotic attack involving a knife and car took place Monday on the campus of the Ohio State University, officials said.
A Columbus Fire Department official told Fox News that 10 people were transported to the hospital, with one in critical condition.
Ohio State University said in a statement the injuries included stab wounds, and being struck by a vehicle. There were also other injuries that were being evaluated.
Law enforcement sources told The Columbus Dispatch that a car initially rammed Watts Hall, the location of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, about 9:40 a.m., and at least two people got out of the car.
We’re now learning that a 20-year-old Somali Muslim refugee is a suspect in the attack.
