Ohio state university attacker killed, 11 hospitalized

Ohio state university attacker killed, 11 hospitalizedA Somali-born Ohio State student cut students with a butcher knife Monday before being fatally shot by a university police officer, authorities said, CNN.

Eleven people were rushed to hospitals and one was in critical condition, according to university Police Chief Craig Stone.

The FBI is investigating the incident, although no information has been revealed yet as to whether the attack was terror-related.

Abdul Razak Ali Artan's Facebook page is being examined though law enforcement officials said it will take time to ascertain motive.

In a Facebook post shortly before the Monday morning rampage, the Somali immigrant urged America "to stop interfering with other countries, especially the Muslim Ummah," a term for Muslim people at large.

"By Allah, we will not let you sleep unless you give peace to the Muslims. You will not celebrate or enjoy any holiday."

In a news conference Monday, Ohio State President Dr. Michael V. Drake cautioned against jumping to conclusions when asked if the incident was terror-related or had anything to do with Ohio's Somali community, the second-largest in the country.

"We all know when things like this happen that there's a tendency sometimes for people to put people together and create other kinds of theories. We don't know anything that would link this to any community. We certainly don't have any evidence that would say that's the case," Drake said.
