Ohio State University police reported an “active shooter” on campus this morning (Monday). At least eight people were taken to hospital.

The university’s website warned students and staff on Monday there was a gunman on campus and they should “run, hide, fight”.

One student told that he heard gunfire from his dorm room.

“I heard gunshots from my dorm, probably six or seven,” said Stephen Yunker, 18, a freshman who lives two blocks from Watts Hall, where the incident occurred.

He said he and his roommate looked at each other, heard sirens about five seconds later, and then looked out the window.

“We saw fire trucks, couple of cars, and a body laying on the ground,” he said.

Another student said she never heard gunshots but saw a car plow into a crowd of people who had evacuated during an alarm.

“This car just swerved and ran into a whole group of people,” said Nicole Kreinbrink. “It hit a cop really bad.”

Columbus Fire Department confirmed nine people were injured and taken to local hospitals, eight in stable and one in critical condition.

Columbus Police also stated that one suspect was killed.
