So, the attacker was a Somali refugee, and used one of the methods that ISIS has been suggesting for a couple of years now?
I really don't think it will be hard to figure out his motive.
Current reports on Foxnews.com are suggesting that he was only armed with a butcher knife, and that the shots were fired by campus police.
What is the current word on those two guys that were arrested? Someone said they were just getting high.

Well, it seems very coordinated. If the tweets are correct you have the following.
1. A fire alarm triggered to get students outside. They would be worried about that threat and not others.
2. Car pulls up and ran over people. Then 'exploded' in some fashion. Seems it did not work and the secondary weapon was a machete.
3. Shots fired were from law enforcement to kill driver(?)
4. This would mean there is at least ONE other person involved.
Looks like this could have been a lot worse than it was. Early in the day....I would think all campuses would be on high alert right now.
Why is the press calling this a "mass shooting"...if the terrorist is using a car and a machete to attack people?

I live less than two miles from that scene. I heard a clear explosion. I also heard shots from what had to be multiple weapons.
I live close enough to hear the roar of the crowd on football Saturdays, so everything I heard was clear as a bell.
