An active shooter has been reported at Ohio State University’s Columbus campus.
Just before 10am, the university issued a warning telling students to shelter in place.
The first reports of gunshots came from Watts Hall near 19th and College. According to the school’s website, the building is home to the Materials Science and Engineering program.
Since then though, the focus of law enforcement presence on the campus is on a nearby parking garage, where the shooter or shooters are believed to be hiding.
So far, at least seven people have been transported to the hospital. Two of those patients are in stable condition. The rest of the conditions have not been released.
