An Ohio State shooting has left at least nine people injured following an active shooter situation at the university's Columbus campus Monday morning.

Ohio State University lifted its “shelter in place” warning after 11 a.m. Monday after law enforcement said they had secured the scene, the Wall Street Journal noted.

The school has canceled its classes for the rest of the day.

There are at least nine victims receiving treatment. Columbus fire officials told NBC4 that of the victims, one is in critical condition.

Information on the suspect involved in the shooting is not yet available.

A law enforcement official told NBC News that some of the victims were wounded with a knife and that it was unclear whether any of the victims had been shot.

The official also said that a student spotted a car that ran into a crowd.

An active shooter report went out just before 10 a.m. Monday, which prompted
police, ambulances and S.W.A.T. to come on the scene immediately to assist campus police, NBC4 noted.

The university also posted an alert on Twitter.

Wyatt Crosher, a sophomore at the school, said he had heard what sounded like gunshots coming from a class building on campus.

“My roommate and I heard about three or four gunshots from across the street, and soon after we heard a bunch of police and ambulances pull up across the street,” Crosher said, per NBC4.

“I was going to class and just all the people were running and I was really nervous I was like oh crap,” said fifth-year senior Scott Bedle, per NBC4. “I saw people running cop sirens everything.”

The Ohio State Wexner Medical Center released the following statement shortly after 11 a.m. Monday:

“Our priority is to ensure the health and safety of our patients, visitors and employees. At this time, we are taking the appropriate steps, including collaborating with local authorities, to understand what has occurred and to manage the situation.”
