On Monday (11/28), Ohio State University students returned from Thanksgiving break only to be met by a fellow student as he purposefully crashed into pedestrians and began a stabbing spree. 11 people were rushed to the hospital.

Abdul Razak Ali Artan (the attacker), age 18, was a Samali refugee who left his home with his family in 2007. He then lived in Pakistan and in 2014 became a legal resident of the United States. Prior to his attendance at Ohio State University, he attended Columbus State Community College. Artan had previously partook in an interview for the school newspaper, the Lantern, and told the newspaper that he had been “kind of scared” to pray on the campus in public.

Early Monday morning, Artan drove over the curb onto the sidewalk and crashed into pedestrians. He then exited the vehicle and proceeded to chase people with a butcher knife. A police officer, Alan Harujko arrived on the scene and after warning Artan to drop the weapon, Harujko shot him and he died.

The campus was on lock-down for an hour and a half after the first report of a threat. OSU’s emergency office then tweeted “Run, Hide, Fight,” and “Continue to shelter in place.”

Whether this was a terrorist attack is still under investigation.
