Ohio State attack probed as possible terrorism

COLUMBUS -- A police chief says authorities are looking into whether the attack at Ohio State University was related to terrorism.


Columbus Police Chief Kim Jacobs was asked at a news conference Monday afternoon whether authorities were considering the possibility that it was a terror attack.


Jacobs says, "I think we have to consider that it is."


Authorities say a man purposely plowed his car over a curb and into pedestrians on Monday morning before jumping out of the car and attacking people with a butcher knife. A police officer who was nearby because of an earlier gas leak was on the scene in a minute and shot and killed the attacker.


The FBI and other agencies joined the investigation.


Authorities say nine people were hurt, one of them critically.
