COLUMBUS, Ohio (KDKA/AP) — At least 8 people have reportedly been injured in a mass shooting at Ohio State University.
Columbus Fire Department officials tell CBS affiliate WBNS that 8 people have been transported to area hospitals.
Seven of those patients were reportedly stable, at least one of them critical.
Law enforcement say one suspect has been shot and is dead.
Police tell WBNS that the incident started around 9:30 a.m. this morning when a vehicle ran into the chemical engineering building.
A tweet went out alerting students of the situation.
The tweet says: “Buckeye Alert: Active Shooter on campus. Run Hide Fight. Watts Hall. 19th and College.” Watts Hall is a materials science and engineering building.
“Run, hide, fight” is standard protocol for active shooter situations. It means: Run, evacuate if possible; Hide, get silently out of view; or Fight, as a last resort, take action to disrupt or incapacitate the shooter if your life is in imminent danger.
The schools Twitter account told students to continue sheltering in place north of the campus.
This is a developing story.
