    Terror Attack – Here is what we know

    Artan allegedly made a Facebook post, which warned America to ‘stop interfering with other countries if you want us Muslims to stop carrying lone wolf attacks’. Also claiming he is ‘sick and tired of seeing my fellow Muslim brothers and sisters being killed and tortured EVERYWHERE. I can’t take it anymore’.

    A gruesome attack on the Ohio State University campus.

    • A Fire alarm was pulled at Watts Hall just around 9:45am, before Artan reportedly mowed down evacuating students and staff with his car.
    • Artan got out of the vehicle and slashed victims with a knife injuring 11.
    • One person has been reported as critically injured.
    • Officer Alan Harujko, 28, responding to the incident, shot Artan dead within 60 seconds of him failing to respond to commands, at 9:53am.
    • The shelter in place was lifted just after 11:30am. Police believe Artan was only one attacker.
    • Two other men were handcuffed and taken from the scene.

    The attack comes after ISIS’ called for jihadists to use knife attacks as they’re the most widely available weapons and include vehicles.

    Authorities are investigating an anti-U.S. rant posted on Facebook just minutes before the Ohio State University attack today that is believed to be linked to suspect Abdul Razak Ali Artan.

    Artan is reportedly a Somali refugee who fled his home country in 2007, moving first to Pakistan with his family before coming to America in 2014 and gaining legal permanent resident status.

    Somalia has become a haven for terror groups – including ISIS – since civil war broke out in the 1990s. And Columbus has one of the largest contingents of Somali refugees in the U.S.
