COLUMBUS, Ohio – (CBS) A young man deliberately rammed students with a car on the campus of Ohio State University and then jumped out to stab them on Monday morning, setting off a campus-wide lockdown and a mass active shooter alert, officials said. The man was quickly shot dead by a campus officer nearby.
Ohio officials said it appears this is possibly an act of terrorism, and the FBI and ATF have been sent in to help investigate.
A federal law enforcement official tells CBS News that the man shot and killed in the incident at Ohio State University has been identified as 18-year-old Abdul Ali Artan, a Somali refugee and student at Ohio State. Officials have not said when or where he entered the United States.
