Somali Immigrant Killed in Attack on Ohio State University

There has been a lot of chatter about an active shooting situation this morning at Ohio State University,

Here is the dead perp.

Police confirm the suspect who drove a car into a crowd of people and began attacking them with a butcher knife on the campus of The Ohio State University is dead.

Columbus fire officials tell NBC4 nine people were transported to local hospitals, and all nine victims have non-life-threatening injuries. The patients were split among OSU Wexner Medical Center, OhioHealth Grant Medical Center and OhioHealth Riverside Methodist Hospital.

OSU president Michael Drake says the sole suspect drove a car into a group of people, got out and began to cut them with a butcher knife. A police officer arrived within a minute of the attack and shot and killed the attacker.

Victims were hospitalized with injuries including stab wounds, injury by motor vehicle and other injuries that are being evaluated.

Campus remains open during the continued investigation, although classes have been canceled for the remainder of the day.

...One student told NBC News she was walking down the street when she saw a car plow into a crowd of people who had evacuated an academic building during a fire alarm.

“This car just swerved and ran into a whole group of people,” said Nicole Kreinbrink. “It hit a cop really bad.”

Update: NBC reports the dead man, the attacker was named Abdul Razaq Ali Artan.
Law enforcement officials told NBC News the suspect's name is Abdul Razaq Ali Artan, an 18-year-old student at the university. He was a Somali refugee who left his homeland with his family in 2007, lived in Pakistan and then came to the United States in 2014 as a legal permanent resident of the United States, officials said.

He attended Columbus State Community College for two years, graduating cum laude with an associates degree before moving onto Ohio State to continue his studies. He told a campus publication that on his first day at OSU, he was "kind of scared" to pray in public.

"If people look at me, a Muslim praying, I don't know what they're going to think, what's going to happen," Artan was quoted as saying in the Lantern.

More on Artan here at the Independent Journal Review:
Arian was apparently profiled in The Lantern’s “Humans of Ohio State” section, in which he complained about not having a designated area to pray on campus.
Earlier reports on the identity of the suspect were incorrect, we regret the error.

Update: Like Rusty says, "terrorist mentions Anwar al-Awlaki", never fails. ABC News’ Mike Levine reports that investigators are looking into a “declaration” that was posted on Artan’s Facebook page. The rant reads, according to Levine, “I am sick and tired of seeing [Muslims] killed & tortured EVERYWHERE.” The post also mentions New Mexico-born terrorist recruiter Anwar al-Awlaki.
Update: ISIS claims the attack.

But of course they would claim it, if they did it or not. But the ISIS video how to kill a Kuffar was released one day before the attack, not a coincidence in my book.

1 Religion of Peace....

Let now Watch as the leftist scum media and Dems will say "Its Trump who is stirring up all this fear and hatred".

Seriously, when the shit hits the fan it will be prophetic for these un-american mouthpieces to be drowned in their own excrement.

2 Why am I not surprised a moslem has done something like this? It amazes me that liberals still accuse people of being bigots if they don't like the idea of moslems invading the west.

3 I read one report that said the students were gathered outside in response to a fire alarm. If true, what is the bet this slimes fingerprints will be found on the alarm?

4 Some prankster could have pulled the alarm and this asshole took advantage of it. Anyhow I would like to thank the cop who gave this vermin a fatal case of lead poisoning.

5 He was offended by normal American's simply walking down the sidewalk of their campus free from all the evils that plague the Islamic world.

6 progressives on twitter assure me this is our own fault, that we have antagonized and bullied the poor muzzlemen into violence by committing over 1000 hate crimes since Trump was inaugurated. For a certain definition of hate crime. Looking too hard at a Woman of Cover is a hate crime but driving a truck into a crowd and knifing the survivors is not a hate crime.
Artan could have parked with his front tire on a prog's chest and it would still try to explain with sign language that this was caused by my intolerance.

7 It was 11 stabbed and the media screwed-up again! The only active shooter was the cop!

8 ("If people look at me, a Muslim praying, I don't know what they're going to think, what's going to happen," Artan was quoted as saying in the Lantern.)

I'm sure the OSU Rainbow Alliance would think it was adorable... especially the ass-in-the-air part.

9 almost but not quite off topic:
why do the terrorists killed by Israel look like a successful grunge band and the Ohio stabby boy looks like a cartoon who grew up with a steel band around his skull? This kid is not going to make it onto the cover of Rolling Stone magazine.

10 Maybe followers of Mohammad shut it down for a few days....Let Media portray them as victims........Then go on war path again killing whoever they want........

12 To those that believe Muslims should be allowed to immigrate to the United States.
France now has more mosques than churches. It doesn't take long. London has a Muslim mayor. What's wrong with that picture?

18 And JRS wonders why everyone hates mo-slimes. Hey goatboy, did you get a knock back from your hairy friend again? Kill it and sell the meat and go buy yourself a new lover, it will save your hand and then maybe you can type a sentence that is grammatically correct and punctuated correctly as well. Although growing up surrounded by and smelling of goat crap probably saw you ostracized at school.
