Police: 4 stabbed in Columbus, Ohio, office building
Question of the Day
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A man stabbed four people at a downtown office building Wednesday afternoon and was shot by a police officer at whom he lunged with his weapon, authorities and a witness said.
Three of the victims are in critical condition, and a fourth received minor injuries, Sgt. Rich Weiner, a Columbus police spokesman, said. The suspect, whose name hasn’t been released, is also in critical condition.
The attack was reported before 1 p.m. at a building that houses offices of the state attorney general and Miami-Jacobs Career College.
Police don’t know what prompted the attack or whether there’s any connection between the suspect and the wounded.
Jason Jackson, 31, works at a food stand in the building’s lobby. He told the Columbus Dispatch that he heard a scream and that a security guard told everyone to leave. People tripped over one another trying to get out of the building, he said.
After he left the building, he circled back and saw a man headed toward officers. The officers told the man to drop his weapon, but the man lunged at an officer, who then shot him, Mr. Jackson told the newspaper.
A message left with the attorney general’s office wasn’t immediately returned.
