From NBC News:
A man plowed his car into a crowd on the Ohio State University campus, then jumped out and started stabbing people with a butcher knife before being shot dead by police Monday morning, officials said.
Nine people were taken to hospitals after the ambush, and one was in critical condition. The incident was initially reported as an "active shooter" situation, but the suspect did not shoot anyone.
A police officer was on the scene within a minute and killed the assailant. "He engaged the suspect and eliminated the threat," OSU Police Chief Craig Stone said.
The suspect's name was not released, but law enforcement officials told NBC News he was a Somali refugee who was a legal permanent resident of the United States.
The motive was unknown, but officials said the attack was clearly deliberate and may have been planned in advance.
"This was done on purpose," Stone said.

Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
