Authorities identify the Ohio State University attacker and now there are questions if the attack could be an act of terrorism. The suspect who was shot and killed is Abdul Razak Ali Artan who was a first-year student at OSU. At least nine people were hurt after an attack Monday at the school. One person is in critical condition.
Columbus police said the suspect purposely drove his vehicle over a curb and struck pedestrians. He then exited his vehicle with a butcher’s knife and proceeded to cut several people. MSNBC reports that the suspect, a Somali refugee, was in fact a student at the university. Artan fled Somalia with his family in 2007 before first landing in Pakistan. It was not until 2014 that he came to the United States where he obtained legal, permanent status. FULL REPORT
