A suspect is dead and at least nine injured about an hour after an active shooter situation was reported at Ohio State University. Just before 10am, the university issued a warning telling students at the school’s Columbus campus to shelter in place.
Since then though, the focus of law enforcement presence on the campus has been on a nearby parking garage, where the shooter or shooters were believed to be hiding.
Police stormed the garage just before 11am and minutes later they confirmed that one suspect was dead. Two men, one black and one white, were also brought out of the building in handcuffs.
It’s unclear if there are more suspects and the campus remains on lock down.
