5 key facts to know about the Ohio State attack


Ten people on Ohio State’s campus have been transported to nearby hospitals after an attack at the university that left the suspect dead.

According to Michael V. Drake, Ohio State University President, the suspect drove into a group of pedestrians, exited the car and then cut several people.

Public Safety director Monica Moll said the suspect stabbed pedestrians with a butcher knife.

The emergency dispatch center got a call that a vehicle hit a pedestrian at 9:52 a.m. and an officer was able to respond in less than a minute.

The officer engaged the suspect and shot and killed him.

Here are five key facts to know about the attack at OSU:

3. What are Ohio Governor, lawmakers and President-elect Trump saying?

President-elect Donald Trump wrote a message on his Facebook wall saying “Watching the news unfold at Ohio State University. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the students and administration. Excellent job by the Ohio State University Emergency Management Team (OSU_EMFP) in immediately notifying students & faculty via social media with the message: ‘Buckeye Alert: Active Shooter on campus. Run Hide Fight. Watts Hall. 19th and College.’ THANK YOU to all FIRST RESPONDERS who reacted immediately and eliminated the threat on campus.”

Thousands of students, faculty and staff received Buckeye Alert notices beginning at 9:55 a.m., three minutes after the emergency dispatch center got the initial call.

Students are still reporting being in a state of shock and panic.

OSU sophomore Josh Fulker of Troy lives in a dorm on Woodruff Avenue, which is about a block from the attack site at the university.

“They did a very good job of responding, as soon as I heard shots and saw people running, there were sirens.”
