    COLUMBUS, Ohio — An active shooter has been reported on the Ohio State University campus, according to the university’s Department of Public Safety website.

    People are urged to shelter in place and avoid the area.

    “Buckeye Alert: Active Shooter on campus. Run Hide Fight. Watts Hall. 19th and College,” OSU Emergency Management tweeted Monday morning.

    It was not immediately clear whether anyone has been injured.

    Sophomore Wyatt Crosher said he heard gunfire that he believes came from a class building across the street.

    “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,” the 19-year-old 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.”

    I hope any negotiations with the shooter(s) will be conducted by a mute sniper.

    Not an active shooter situation, as the mainstream media would like you to think. Assailant used a car and a butcher knife. Only fatality is the suspect.

    Nine individuals were hospitalized on Monday following an attack on north campus at The Ohio State University, President Michael Drake confirmed in a press conference outside Wexner Medical Center.

    “A vehicle ran into a group of pedestrians, people gathered on a street corner, resulting in several injuries,” Drake said. “The driver got out and then used a weapon to cut several people who were then transported to several hospitals.”

    The male suspect has been shot and is deceased, the university said in a statement. Columbus Police Chief Kim Jacobs said authorities did not have enough information initially to determine if the suspect was a student. The weapon was described by police at the press conference as a "butcher knife," Jacobs said.

    NBC News later reported the suspect was an 18-year-old student.

    The nine people hospitalized have non-life threatening injuries, according to officials at Wexner Medical Center, Riverside Hospital and Grant Hospital. Eight people were treated initially before a ninth came later with injuries.

    A Wexner Medical Center spokesman said the injuries were concurrent with stab wounds, wounds by motor vehicle and other injuries that continue to be evaluated. He said that "most" of the victims are awake and speaking with authorities.

    The incident occurred at Watts Hall around 9:52 a.m., located on the corner of College Avenue and 19th Avenue of Ohio State's campus. At 9:53 a.m., an Ohio State police officer reported they heard gunshots and saw the suspect leave their vehicle, University Director of Public Safety Monica Moll said.

    The suspect then left his car—a silver Honda Civic—and proceeded to cut multiple people, before being shot and killed by the officer. There were reports of a second suspect, which resulted in a search throughout north campus, particularly in the Lane Avenue parking garage.

    Ohio State University Police Chief Craig Stone said the area was canvassed and another suspect was not found, leaving authorities and the university to determine there was one suspect, who was pronounced dead on arrival. Two individuals were removed from the parking garage but are no longer considered suspects.

    “This is obviously a tragic situation and something that we prepare for every year,” Drake said. “The best that we can do is be prepare and respond appropriately. I want to say that we are so grateful that our police were there on scene and able to neutralize the situation, the injuries were not more severe than they were.

    Ohio State canceled classes for the rest of Monday after a 90-minute lockdown was lifted around 11:30 a.m. They are set to resume on Tuesday as regularly scheduled.

    "The motive for his attack was unknown, although law enforcement sources said he posted a rant on social media prior to the incident. Officials said the attack was clearly deliberate and may have been planned in advance."

    I feel for the officer that had to shoot him. I'm pretty sure when he woke up, that's not how he was hoping his day would go. I hope he realizes it was a good decision and doesn't double think it or dwell on it.

    I totally agree. Taking someone's life will be something he has to deal with for the rest of his life even if it was a POS like that (makes it easier:D). He should see someone and talk about it. It helps, seen it first hand what bottling up things like this can do with someone in my family that served in Iraq and Afghanistan.
