What was originally reported as an “active shooter situation” at Ohio State this morning was soon revealed to be a car-ramming/stabbing terrorist attack by an 18 -year-old Somali Muslim refugee named Abdul Artan.
Law enforcement officials told NBC News the suspect’s name is Abdul 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.
