An Ohio State University police officer is being praised for shooting and killing a man who drove his car into a crowd and stabbed multiple people on campus.
Department of Public Safety Director Monica Moll says 28-year-old Officer Alan Horujko started on the Ohio State University police force in January 2015.
Moll says Horujko did a "fabulous job" on Monday and is owed a debt of gratitude.
Ohio State president Michael Drake says he thanked the officer for following his training and being able to end the situation within about a minute.
According to university police, Horujko was responding to the emergency call at 9:52 a.m.
Within second of arrival, Horujko reported an officer in trouble as the suspect, 18-year-old Abdul Razak Ali Artan, left the vehicle with a butcher knife and began stabbing people.
Horujko shot and killed Artan after he refused to comply.
University police Chief Craig Stone says it was fortunate there was a nearby gas leak the officer had gone to investigate. Stone says it helped position the officer to respond to the attack so quickly.
