Update, 12:20 a.m.:
A man was killed by law enforcement at the Ohio State University campus in Columbus this morning after striking pedestrians with his car and stabbing victims with a butcher knife.
Nine victims were hospitalized, none evidently with life-threatening injuries.
Earlier reports indicated the victim was armed with a gun and may have had an accomplice, but the Columbus Dispatch is now reporting
there was only one assailant. It's still not clear if he was armed with a gun. (OSU security tweeted out an "active shooter" alert initially.) An OSU police officer shot and killed the attacker.
OSU security declared the campus secure around 11:30 a.m. Eastern time. Classes at the university remain cancelled for the rest of the day.
