Police are investigating the link between a Facebook rant, posted minutes before the attack at Ohio State University, and the alleged suspect, Abdul Razak Ali Artan, ABC News reported.

The post appeared three minutes before the beginning of the rampage that left 11 people injured, ABC reported.

"I can't take it anymore. America! Stop interfering with other countries, especially the Muslim Ummah. We are not weak. We are not weak, remember that," the post read in part.

Though police are still investigating the motive, terrorism is believed to be the driving force.

Artan, a permanent U.S. citizen of Somali descent, allegedly drove his car into a group of pedestrians and started slashing them with a knife before being shot dead by a police officer.

ABC News reports that ISIS has been urging followers to use the tactics of last year's attacker in Nice, France, who plowed into a crowded Bastille Day celebration, killing 84 people.
