UPDATE:


NBC News reports the suspect in the attack was an 18-year-old student, a Somali refugee and legal permanent resident of the United States. The suspect’s name was not released and the motive was unknown, but officials said the attack was clearly deliberate and may have been planned in advance.



Update:



Abdul Razak Ali Artan, man of Somali descent, identified as Ohio State attacker


A U.S. official has identified the suspect in the Ohio State attack that injured nine people as a man of Somali descent.

The official identified Abdul Razak Ali Artan as the now-deceased suspect. He was born in Somalia and living in the United States as a legal permanent resident. It was unclear when Artan came to the U.S.

The official wasn’t authorized to publicly discuss details of the ongoing case and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.

A second law enforcement official confirmed that authorities believe the suspect’s name is Abdul Artan. That official also wasn’t authorized to publicly discuss details of the ongoing case and spoke on condition of anonymity.

Authorities say the suspect was shot to death Monday by a police officer after driving up onto a curb and into pedestrians and attacking people with a knife.

Active shooter reported on Ohio State University campus

(CNN)    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 read that someone had driven a car into a building, just prior to thee reports of the machete attack. My younger cousin is a freshman biology major. :( He's Facebook checked in as safe.
