Gunman shot dead after injuring eight at Ohio State University


BBC – A suspect has been shot and killed after a campus rampage in Ohio that left at least eight people injured.

A spokesman for Ohio State University said some of the victims had been stabbed and hit by a vehicle.

The alert began at around 10:00 local time when the college warned students in a tweet to “Run Hide Fight”.

Hours later police declared the scene “secure”, lifting the shelter-in-place order and cancelling classes for the remainder of Monday.

Local hospitals report they are treating eight victims who have non-life-threatening injuries.

A motive is unclear for the attack at the Columbus-based university, which has 60,000 students and is one of the largest in the US.
