This is breaking now. Alert came out 20 minutes ago on Twitter:


OSU Emergency Mngmnt ‏@OSU_EMFP

Buckeye Alert: Active Shooter on campus. Run Hide Fight. Watts Hall. 19th and College.

Retweets 3,631 Likes 516
9:56 AM - 28 Nov 2016


From the local NBC affiliate in Columbus:


Police are telling people to shelter in place and avoid the area of College Road north. At least one person was transported to a local hospital.

Watts Hall is the Material Science and Engineering building for campus.


Nothing else yet.

EDIT:

One suspect apparently down (presumably deceased). CNN is reporting that eight people have been transported to multiple hospitals, one in critical condition.

Reported down already

This twitter account is saying OSU PD shot one person but there's an unconfirmed second subject. Of course.

Does anyone have a link to the police scanner feed?

Hopefully this will turn out to be a false alarm.

Interesting, if true....

twitter.com...

ETA - in the event that the tweet mysteriously disappears, it's a screen cap of a FB post from a supposed OSU student that says "...My Major building had the fire alarm pulled. The fire people came and were here for a while then when they are leaving this guy drives his car up on the sidewalk running over people and some # exploded and his car windows were busted out and went flying. He gets out of the car with a knife and starts trying to stab people and we all took off running. Then I guess he started shooting. Ugh."

CNN is now reporting that the Columbus Fire Dept says seven people have been transported to hospitals. No word on the nature of the injuries.

County has somebody at gunpoint in the parking garage. Really the only thing happening right now aside from sweep and clears.

Sounds like now they're trying to catch up to a vehicle in traffic, as well, that an officer said he may have encountered yesterday.

I posted a tweet earlier that was a picture of a man that was supposedly a shooter, down and bleeding. There's been reports that there was more than one shooter, and of course always a chance that he wasn't acting alone.

Right now they've got one person at gunpoint in a parking garage and are following a vehicle through town.

ETA two people taken out of parking garage in handcuffs supposedly

In almost all cases like this, there are reports of a second shooter or actor/conspirator even when there isnt one. Dont know if that is just some part of the human psyche reacting to a situation such as this, picking out possible threats where there isnt one.......
