Ohio State University was on lockdown this morning after at least one active shooter was reported on campus.Students were instructed to “Run, Hide, Fight.”
Within hours, police had killed one attacker, but not before as many as 10 people were injured, one critically in the attack.
However, more details are emerging that seem to indicate this was a coordinated attack.
Fox News reports, Law enforcement sources additionally told The Columbus Dispatch that a car initially rammed Watts Hall about 9:40 a.m., and at least two people got out of the car. One person had a gun, while the second appeared to have a large knife, according to the Dispatch.And in fact, the Daily Mail posted these pictures of two suspects being led away in handcuffs.
Additionally, the Daily Mail reports Federal official told CNN that a knife-wielding attacker went on a stabbing rampage at Watts Hall around 10am. Witnesses said someone pulled the fire alarm at the building and that man mowed them down with his car as they were evacuating.
This is consistent from some of the tweets posted earlier today
There are multiple reports of a car jumping the curb to hit pedestrians/students prior to the attacks and shooting. #OhioState— Ryan Donnelly (@RDonnellyBG) November 28, 2016

Clearly we need to have all the facts, but it does appear this wasn’t just one crazy shooter with a gun.
