Update: Law enforcement sources have told Fox News that A Somali man in his 20s was behind an attack that has left nine injured at Ohio State University that involved a car and butcher knife. Authorities have said it doesn’t not appear the suspect used a gun in the attack.  He is a Somali refugee but he achieved legal resident status.

After the suspect plowed his vehicle into the crowd, officials said he got out of the vehicle and began attacking people with a butcher knife before he was shot and killed by a campus police officer.

The suspect’s name was yet not released and the motive behind the attack is still unclear, according to law enforcement sources, but investigators are not ruling out anything at this point.

Ohio State Police Chief Craig Stone said the attacker purposely drove over a curb and into pedestrians.

At 9:56 a.m. the school sent out an alert that read “Buckeye Alert: Active Shooter on campus. Run Hide Fight. Watts Hall. 19th and College.”

At 11:30 a.m., the school announced the shelter in place was lifted, and the “scene is now secure.” They also announced that all classes were canceled on the Columbus campus for the remainder of the day.
