(Before It's News)

At least eight people were injured in an attack on the Ohio State University campus Monday morning, including at least four victims who suffered gunshot wounds. Multiple suspects are thought to have carried out the attack, which reportedly involved both a gun and a machete.

Officials have confirmed that one of the suspects was fatally shot in an encounter with police. Soon thereafter, two more people were cornered in a parking garage near campus and led out by police in handcuffs.

OSU student Ben Slaton, who took the following video, reported that he heard a gunshot and looked out a classroom-building window to see police standing over the suspect’s body.

According to CBS News, the incident began Monday morning when firefighters received reports of a chlorine leak at the OSU chemical engineering building. When they arrived around 9:30 a.m., they found a vehicle had crashed into the building and people were reporting a knife attack inside.

Soon after, OSU Emergency Management sent out an alert advising of an “Active Shooter on campus” and telling students to “Run Hide Fight.”

Around 11:30 a.m., OSU Emergency Management reported that the campus was now secure. Columbus firefighters say at least eight victims have been taken to the hospital with injuries, and one is in critical condition.
